Many Yankee fans were shocked the club traded a homegrown, reliable, starting pitcher for the injured Cardinals outfielder. Bader is on the injured list with plantar fasciitis and remains in a walking boot.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman says the team is confident the speedy centerfielder with elite defensive skills will be available sometime next month and in the postseason. Hader, 28, is also under contract for next season. He won a Gold Glove last year.
