Clay Rapada expected to begin season on disabled list

Clay Rapada, who was very effective as a situational left-hander for the Yankees last year, is expected to begin the season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.

Rapada latched on with the Yankees last February after being released by the Orioles and appeared in 70 games, posting a 2.82 ERA and holding left-handed hitters to a .186 batting average.

New York’s primary left-handed reliever, Boone Logan, was sidelined by an elbow injury of his own recently, but now looks likely to avoid the DL.
