As expected, BJ Upton, Sam Fuld, and Robinson Chirinos have been placed on the 15-day disabled list. As of now, Kyle Farnsworth is on the active roster, but that is expected to change before Friday’s game.

Upton’s place on the DL is retroactive to March 26, which means he will be eligible to be activated on the first day of the road trip (April 10 in Detroit) that immediately follows the season-opening series against the Yankees.

    I would like everyone to turn back time and read my posts on how Michael Pineda would be heading to the DL this season. You all remember.

    I like how Espn thinks the Yankees have an "elite" rotation.

    Pineda- injury prone. Terrible second half w/ signs of injury/fatigue

    Kuroda- 37 yo fly ball pitcher who pitched in the NL West his whole career. Easily will have an era in the 4's if not the 5's.

    Nova- overrated young arm who got 16 wins because he pitches with one of the best offenses. His peripherals weren't great.

    Hughes/Pettite/Garcia- yea ok

    • Alex says:

      The annoying thing is, the Yankees will still win 90+ games just because of the offense. In the next year or so their age will finally catch them and bring them down hard at least

      • Beth says:

        But your thinking assumes they are too stupid to realize they'll need to find replacements for the likes of Jeter and Rodriguez. They know this, and between a decent farm system and free agent money they will still be strong.

      Don't know about what ESPN thinks of Yanks pitching—haven't found the link yet. However, several have picked the Rays to win the World Series. There are a lot of picks, so the Rays don't get the majority, but they are fairly well represented:

      Out of 50 "expert" picks, the East is represented this way:

      Red Sox win World Series—1 expert pick

      Yankees win World Series—3 expert picks

      Rays win World Series—7 expert picks

      I don't think that's bad considering the source.

      • Beth says:

        I don't like getting all these pre season picks. It brings on the evil eye. Better to surprise everyone.

        And honestly, I think both the Angels and Texas are really good this year. For once the AL East won't have the wild card(s) wrapped up.
