Yanks Move Soriano To 60-Day DL

It has been a crazy June for the Yankees, headlined by injuries to Joba Chamberlain and Derek Jeter. So honestly, the headline for this story should not be a shock at all.

ESPNNewYork.com writer Ian Begley is reporting that Yankees manager Joe Girardi and team doctors have decided to move reliever Rafael Soriano from the 15-day DL to the 60-day disabled list. Back in mid-May, the Yankees placed Soriano on the disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow. So after days of speculation that Soriano might return before the All-Star Break, the earliest he can now come off the D-L is now July 15.

The team originally thought Soriano would receive medical clearance this week to continue a regular throwing program. But after Soriano attempted to start throwing on Tuesday, the Yankees medical staff ordered Soriano to stop the program for at least 7 days. Girardi said Soriano felt “better than he was the last time he went to play catch” but said the Yankees had to alter Soriano’s throwing program because he was not “100 percent.”
