Matsui may opt for year-ending surgery.

"Yankees GM Brian Cashman said the team is "getting close" to acknowledging Hideki Matsui's season is over.
Matsui suffered a setback in his recovery, and will meet with the team physician in the next couple of days. If he does need to undergo surgery, it will likely be decided upon at that time.

I'm pretty surprised by this. Great heads up, thanks for that.

With today's news, does Matsui now become droppable in mixed leagues? I have Tulo and Ortiz both on the DL and only two DL spots. With the short week I could really use an extra spot opened up for a spot start or two. My offense is strong enough without Matsui. My biggest concern is he will not be an everyday player the rest of the year even if he does come back.

I'd hold him until it's official, but if you need a spot, I could understand dropping him.

Who is going to pick up the slack? Is Brett Gardner going to be the guy? Look at the big brain on Brett!

Ha!

He could have value too. He's got a ton of speed and hasn't been afraid of the Royale with Cheese.

ESPN is reporting the Yankees may be interested in Barry Bonds. Could be intriguing with the short porch in right.

Eh, maybe... I think Ronald Blum is cooking the copy like Scott Templeton.

"No word just yet on how long the Yankees are expecting Matsui to work in the minors, but his return to the lineup could happen in about a week if all goes well and he doesn't experience any setbacks with his knee along the way."
