The Injured List
The Yankees have several players on the Injured List. These players cannot play or practice with the team and must sit out for a certain period of time. The Yankees have had several injuries this season, which has led to a number of players being placed on the Injured List.
Who is on the Injured List?
The following Yankees are currently on the Injured List:
Brett Gardner- OF (Left knee inflammation)
Aaron Hicks- OF (Right forearm strain)
Greg Bird- 1B (Left plantar fasciitis)
Troy Tulowitzki- INF (Left calf strain)
Didi Gregorius- SS (Tommy John surgery)
Miguel Andujar- 3B (Small tear in right labrum)
CC Sabathia- SP (Left shoulder inflammation)
Luis Severino- SP (Tommy John surgery)
Out for the season:
Dellin Betances- RP (Right Achilles tendon tear)
Jonathan Loaisiga- SP (Right shoulder strain)
How long will they be out?
The Yankees have been hit hard by the injury bug this season, losing several key players to long-term injuries. The most recent casualty is outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who suffered a setback in his recovery from a strained hamstring and is now expected to miss at least another month.
other key players who are currently on the Yankees’ injured list include infielder Troy Tulowitzki (calf), pitcher CC Sabathia (knee), and outfielder Aaron Hicks (back). While Tulowitzki and Sabathia are expected to return later this month, Hicks is still recovering from surgery and is not expected back until sometime in August.
The Yankees have also been without catcher Gary Sanchez for most of the season, as he has been dealing with a number of nagging injuries. Sanchez was finally placed on the IL last week with a strained groin and is expected to miss at least another two weeks.
What is the prognosis?
Yankees reliever Dellin Betances (shoulder) and infielder Greg Bird (foot) both appear to be headed for the injured list, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said on Tuesday.
“It’s possible,” Boone said of the two going on the IL. “I would say it’s likely at this point.”
Betances, who has been out since spring training with a shoulder impingement, threw a bullpen session on Tuesday and felt “a little fatigued,” according to Boone. The right-hander is scheduled to see a doctor on Wednesday.
Bird, meanwhile, is dealing with inflammation in his right foot. He received a cortisone shot on Monday and is considered day-to-day.
The Replacement Players
The Yankees have been hit hard by the injury bug this season. Many of their star players are on the injured list, including Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, and Miguel Andujar. The team has had to rely on replacement players to fill the void. These players are not as talented as the starters, but they have been doing their best to keep the Yankees in contention. Let’s take a look at some of the replacement players that have been seeing significant playing time.
Who are the replacement players?
The Yankees have been bitten by the injury bug this season, with multiple key players spending time on the Injured List. Here are some of the players who have stepped up to fill the void:
1. Miguel Andujar: Andujar has been one of the Yankees’ top hitters since being called up from Triple-A in early May. The 23-year-old third baseman is batting .313/.336/.545 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 27 games.
2. Gio Urshela: Urshela has taken over as the Yankees’ primary third baseman since Andujar was sidelined with a shoulder injury in late April. The 27-year-old has been a revelation at the plate, hitting .353/.392/.531 with three home runs and 16 RBI in 31 games.
3. Austin Romine: Romine has been filling in for starter Gary Sanchez behind the plate. The 29-year-old catcher is batting .271/.307/.457 with four home runs and 15 RBI in 32 games.
4. Cameron Maybin: Maybin was signed by the Yankees in late April after being released by the Cleveland Indians. The 32-year-old outfielder is batting .254/.333/.383 with one home run and 11 RBI in 30 games.
How well have they been doing?
The New York Yankees have been hit hard by the injury bug this season, with key players going down left and right. But despite all the injuries, the team has still managed to stay afloat, thanks in part to the play of their replacement players. Let’s take a look at how well some of these replacement players have been doing:
Infielder Gio Urshela has been one of the biggest surprises for the Yankees this season. He’s batting .298 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs, and has been a steadying presence in the infield.
Outfielder Cameron Maybin has also been a pleasant surprise for the Yankees. He’s hitting .285 with 5 home runs and 19 RBIs, and has played solid defense in both left and right field.
Pitcher CC Sabathia has been lights out since coming off the injured list, going 4-1 with a 2.37 ERA in six starts. He’s given the Yankees a much-needed boost in the starting rotation.
The Yankees have also gotten solid contributions from several other replacement players, including pitchers Luis Cessa and Nestor Cortes Jr., infielder DJ LeMahieu, and outfielders Tyler Wade and Clint Frazier. Thanks to their play, the Yankees have stayed afloat despite all the injuries and are currently in first place in the AL East.
