Robertson cleared for return to action


JUPITER, Fla. -- David Robertson is close to getting back in a game for the Yankees. Manager Joe Girardi said Friday that Robertson, who has dealt with some right shoulder discomfort, has been cleared to pitch.

"I think he feels fine," Girardi said.

Robertson's condition was always considered minor, but it's still a relief for the Yankees any time they get good injury news these days. Girardi said that Robertson's next time throwing off a mound could be a bullpen session or a game appearance, but either way would be soon.

The right-handed setup man last pitched in a game on March 1.
