David Robertson to DL

The calendar has flipped, but the Yankees’ luck has not.  Just a few days after Mark Teixeira strained his hamstring and landed on the 15-day disabled list, and a year after the Yankees were ravaged by injuries in ways never before seen in club history, more bad news rolled for the Yanks.

Just minutes after beating the Orioles 4-2 in the team’s Bronx opener, manager Joe Girardi announced that closer David Robertson would be joining the team’s first baseman on the DL.

An MRI revealed a grade 1 groin strain for the right hander who was two-for-two in save opportunities replacing Mariano Rivera.

Shawn Kelly, who closed Monday’s win over Baltimore, is expected to carry the load in the ninth inning, though a closer-by-committee system is likely to develop.  Adam Warren is another who may be called upon.
