Sheffield to have surgery; out until at least September
by SG

A week after going on the DL, Gary Sheffield learned he'll be out longer than 15 days.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Thursday that Sheffield will have surgery on his injured wrist and is expected to be out until at least September. Cashman said the injury is not career- or season-ending.

Tests last week showed a torn ligament in the wrist, as well as a tendon that continues to dislocate. Sheffield was on the 15-day disabled list from May 6-23 with the same injury.

He was replaced on the active roster by outfielder Kevin Thompson.

Well ain't this a kick in the ---? This is disappointing, but expected. If the Yankees do what they should and use this to upgrade their defense by playing Kevin Thompson or even Bubba Crosby more often, this may not be a bad thing. If they use it to get Bernie Williams 500+ AB, it could be the worst thing ever.

Here's tonight's lineup.

1. Johnny Damon, CF
2. Melky Cabrera, LF
3. Jason Giambi, 1B
4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
5. Jorge Posada, DH
6. Robinson Cano, 2B
7. Bernie Williams, RF
8. Miguel Cairo, SS
9. Kelly Stinnett, C

Hooray for House Money!
