David Aardsma throws 35 pitches including sliders


The Yankees made a move during the offseason to sign former Mariners closer David Aardsma to a two-year deal with the catch that he’s recovering from Tommy John Surgery. It seemed like a minor move at the time, but with injuries to Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain this signing seems bigger than ever.


On Monday, Aardsma took a big step forward in his recovery on Monday as he Tweeted that he threw a 35-pitch bullpen session that included sliders.


Just getting back on a mound is good for a pitcher recovering from TJS, but to be throwing sliders at this point means that he’s getting close. All along the expectation is that he comes back around the All-Star break and this seems to be in line with that thinking. He’ll probably throw for four to six more weeks before he starts getting into some rehab games. From that point it shouldn’t take too long since as a reliever he won’t need to get stretched out too far.


The Yankees will take it slow with him because the last thing they need at this point is for him to have a setback and lose yet another reliever.

I'm excited with this move. Hope Aardsma heals fast so he can come up and show us what he can do.

Adding Aardsma's arm in the bullpen would be great. I hope he comes up sometime in July. June might be pushing it.

The bullpen hasn't been the problem, surprisingly. But adding Aardsma will be a solid addition.

No.


The advancing the runners or timely hitting has.
