David Robertson rejoins Yankees

Although Shawn Kelley has been doing an admirable job filling in as the closer for the Yankees, the team is probably glad to get their named ninth-inning guy back from injury.

After dealing with a groin strain early in the season, David Robertson has rejoined the Major League club, according to the Yankees. Robertson was on the 15-day DL, and in his absence, Kelley picked up 4 saves. David Phelps and Adam Warren have also gotten saves for the Yanks.

In a related move, the team outrighted Cesar Cabral, notable for hitting three batters, being ejected, and designated for assignment all in the same day, to Triple-A.
