From Joel Sherman:
Also, the Yanks were privately a lot more optimistic by Sunday that Xavier Nady could avoid Tommy John surgery and that he might be able to return in June and form a righty-lefty DH platoon with Hideki Matsui. Of course, that would mean the Yanks were carrying two players who did not play the field, which hurts roster construction. Also, that is assuming that Matsui’s fragile knees could last.
Nady returning by June would really help a bench that now has Melky Cabrera as its most established bat. He has plenty of reasons to hurry back, as he is in his walk year and is sure to hurt his stock if he does not play at all for the remainder of 2009. A few solid months, on the other hand, would likely establish him as a solid bat who can be counted on to provide some good power from the right side. Hopefully he returns with enough time remaining in the season to be an important member of the 2009 Yankees.
