The Yankees have no need to rush Robertson back this season, but they’re going to do all they can to make sure he’s ready for the playoffs. Since he’s been out, Brian Bruney has stepped up in the hypothetical depth charts and has continued his terrible season.

In four appearances against 10 batters he’s managed to get only five of them out while giving up a run, with two hits, and three walks.

Bruney has just been plain awful and if Robertson doesn’t pitch in the playoffs Bruney is likely to bring that awful form with him in October.
