(4/7/14) Yankees closer David Robertson has been placed on the disabled list with a groin strain Monday, according to the Star-Ledger.

|David Robertson finishes off second save |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/6/14) Yankees closer David Robertson stranded two runners in the ninth inning Sunday to earn his second save in a 6-4 win.
The right-handed reliever allowed a one-out single to Brett Lawrie and a one-out walk to Adam Lind before working out of trouble. He got Colby Rasmus to pop out to third and Melky Cabrera to line out to right field to end the game.
Robertson hasn't allowed a run in three innings this season. He gave up his first hit and walk Sunday.
|David Robertson enters 2014 as the favorite to close games for the Yankees. The 2011 All-Star finished 2013 with a 2.04 ERA and 1.04 WHIP, posting a 10.4 K/9 -- his sixth straight season with that ratio in double-digits. Robertson has five saves over the last two seasons, and might have emerged as the 2012 closer had he not suffered an untimely injury and given way to Rafael Soriano. Robertson will never be Mariano Rivera, but he's a nice sleeper for saves, with high strikeout potential and a low ERA and WHIP. He can be taken in the later rounds of most drafts.
