Hal remains patient as Yanks' injuries mount
NEW YORK -- The Yankees finished Wednesday night's action in Toronto three games over .500 at 20-17, but their managing general partner remains patient.

"I'm concerned about the injuries," Hal Steinbrenner told CBSSports.com on Wednesday morning at the Owners Meetings. "That's more than half the battle. I know they're going to keep trying, keep fighting."

The Yankees are currently without closer Mariano Rivera, setup man David Robertson and left fielder Brett Gardner, all on the disabled list with various injuries. Rivera is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, while going back on a fly ball during batting practice.
