Cashman: Jose Pirela won't be on Yankees' Opening Day roster
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday infielder Jose Pirela wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster, despite a productive spring, per NJ.com. Pirela is sidelined after colliding with the outfield wall Sunday, but even if he was healthy, Cashman said it wouldn't have mattered.
Pirela is batting .370 (10 for 27) with two triples, three doubles, five RBI, three walks, four runs and six strikeouts in 15 spring games.
Yankees' Pirela on outfield collision: Nobody wants to go through that
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Yankees utility man Jose Pirela revealed he was scared when he hit the warning track floor following his outfield-wall collision on Sunday, according to NJ.com.
"Yes, a little," he said. "I tried to relax and stay positive that everything was going to be alright."
Pirela was stretchered off the field with a concussion, and was discharged from the hospital Sunday night after an MRI and a CT scan camp back normal. He said he no longer feels any dizziness on Tuesday, but is still experiencing soreness in his neck and in his back from Sunday's collision. Manager Joe Girardi told the paper he still has some hurdles to pass before he is cleared for game action.
"Nobody wants to go through something like this," Pirela said. "I'm going to keep working and hopefully everything comes out alright."
Girardi: Pirela feeling better Monday, going through battery of tests
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said rookie Jose Pirela was feeling better Monday after suffering a concussion Sunday when he crashed into an outfield wall during a game against the Mets.
"He's pretty good today," Girardi told reporters, per ESPN. "He's sore. His neck is sore, too, [but] he feels and looks better than what I expected.
"He has to go through a battery of tests. We're very careful with it. The bottom line is you can say he's going on the seven-day DL during the season, but it could take longer, or he might be ready in five days. You just don't know with a concussion. For each person it's different. We've seen concussion symptoms last for months. We'll go through all the tests to make sure he's OK before we run him back out there."
Pirela is competing for a spot on the Yankees' bench.
