After being sidelined for a little over a week with discomfort in his throwing shoulder, New York Yankees set up man David Robertson has been cleared to return to action.

"I think he feels fine," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who wasn't sure whether Robertson's next time pitching would be in a game or a bullpen session. 

Robertson last pitched in a game on March 1st, striking out the only batter he faced against the Philadelphia Phillies. That was his second appearance of the spring, pitching a scoreless inning in his spring debut. 

Though Robertson's injury was never considered to be serious, the Yankees will be glad to have the All-Star reliever back on the field as injuries continue to pile up across camp. 

The veteran right-hander will be entering his sixth season in pinstripes, following up a 2012 season in which he ended the year with a 2-7 record and a 2.67 ERA in 65 appearances.
