Bobby Abreu hurt

"Bobby Abreu strained an oblique muscle in batting practice Monday and is expected to be shut down for at least a week or two.

Abreu is one of the game's most durable players, but his status for Opening Day is in question because of the injury. Melky Cabrera can fill in for Abreu in right field, but that's still a big downgrade. Maybe the injury will cause Bernie Williams to reconsider his decision to turn down an invitation to camp."


This is a similar injury that players like Chipper Jones had last year. It had some lingering effects all year that, yankee fans rest assured, should not happen to Abreu because of his durability over the years. SOme people are saying this may bring bernie back, but its doubtful.
