David Robertson landed on the disabled list two weeks ago due to a Grade 1 strain of his left groin, but he’s getting closer to rejoining the Yankees.

According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, Robertson declared himself “ready to go” after he pitched in an extended spring training game this morning. He faced five batters and allowed one hit while throwing 12 out of 16 pitches for strikes.

Robertson plans to play catch tomorrow and rest on Monday before being activated for Tuesday’s game against the Red Sox. Shawn Kelley has been serving as the closer recently, but he’ll return to a set-up role once Robertson is activated.

Robertson was off to a strong start as Mariano Rivera’s successor prior to the injury, tossing three scoreless innings while going 2-for-2 in save opportunities.

    Robertson back on Tuesday and Tex hopefully back on Monday seems like great news all around. So far the injury bug hasn’t hit them too hard. Cervili went down but he should be good to go in a few months. As long as the core line up stays in tact the team should be strong

    They are going to need him, given the way the Yankee bullpen has pitched so far tonight.

    pc…after the last two nights, they’ll need a hell of a lot more than Robertson, just disgusting.
