ANAHEIM, Calif. – On the day the New York Yankees finally got back a reinforcement from their 13-man injured list, manager Aaron Boone disclosed some less promising news about two other banged-up stars.
According to Boone, outfielder Clint Frazier will go
An MRI revealed "enough there" to shut Frazier down, Boone said.
"Some partial tears and stuff that it's going to cost him 10 days, "Boone said, adding that he did not know at that time what exactly was partly a tower. "The good news is we feel like [the IL stint] will be short." [Doctors] feel like it's a 10-14-day thing. Maybe a little less. So we do not feel like it's a long thing. "
Several Boone has revealed that outfielder and designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton's recovery from arm injury has hit a snag before the announcement of the update on Frazier. Although the left biceps strain that landed Stanton on the IL on April 1 has completely healed, Boone said Wednesday that a separate, "residual" left shoulder problem has appeared.
Boone did not specify the nature of the injury but said Stanton In the last days he has been dealing with "stuff" in his left shoulder.
"He's just kind of had it," Boone said.
Once, early in the 2013 season while he was with Miami Marlins, Stanton was scratched from a game because of a sore left shoulder. He was listed as day-to-day with the injury over the next six days before returning to the lineup.
When he arrives in Anaheim with the rest of the club earlier this week, Stanton had a cortisone shot, Boone said.
"He's in. He has not been officially diagnosed with any other ailment during his big league career. day two or three of no swinging, "Boone said.
The Yankees will let the effects of the shot settle into Stanton a little longer before he can pick up a bat. The plan is to leave the superstar in Southern California this weekend while the rest of the team travels to Northern California for its scheduled three-game series with the San Francisco Giants.
A native of suburban Los Angeles, Stanton has rehabbed from other The injuries in Southern California in the past, and the Yankees will allow him to do that for the next few days. When the Bronx Bombers conclude their three-city road trip with a visit to Phoenix to face the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Stanton will join them.
"We figured now while he's coming back from [the biceps injury]let's make sure that Boone said.
While it's unclear exactly when Stanton hurt his shoulder, the Yankees are able to pinpoint the moment Frazier got hurt. It was in the middle of the Monday's series opener, when he jammed his foot awkwardly into the second base while retreating on a pickoff attempt.
Frazier, 23, was visibly hobbled by the injury but played through it the rest of that game.
Frazier is batting .324 with six homers and 17 RBIs in the 18 games since he was called up for Stanton.
Besides getting what Frazier said that the only other thing that would keep him out of any future lineups was if the ankle was broken. The Yankees apparently had somewhat favorable original prognosis too.
"Initially when the doctor saw him [Monday]he did not feel like he needed to get any tests," Boone said Wednesday afternoon, before the results of the MRI came back "And then we kind of proactively [Tuesday]when he had some black and blue in there, decided," Hey, let's just make sure we get this thing covered the best we can and make sure we have all the answers we need. " ''
Sanchez went to 0-for-4 in the Yankees '19659002.
Sanchez went 0-for-4 in the Yankees' 6-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
"Felt we were pretty conservative in how we treated this," Boone said of Sanchez's injury. "Obviously really excited to get him back. It was good to write his name in the lineup, no question. Looking forward to getting him back in the fight and helping us continue to win the games."
Sanchez started at the catcher and batted fourth Wednesday Before going on the 10-day IL on April 12, Sanchez batted .268 with six homers.
In addition to Sanchez's return, the Yankees had some other more promising injury news Wednesday. Boone said the third baseman Miguel Andujar ("small labrum tear") is "doing really well" in his rehab at the team's facility in Tampa, Florida, and is trending in the direction of no needing surgery.
He still needs a formal reevaluation to determine that, but it seems that injury can be best managed healing on its own. That would allow Andujar to stay on the field and avoid a season-ending issue.
"There's a chance this weekend he could get some at-bats in an extended spring and then perhaps make a decision about rehab assignment from there, "The manager said.
All three players have been rehabbing in Tampa, along with shortstop Didi Gregory, who "continues to progress as we hoped" from his offseason Tommy John surgery. Gregory recently made throws from shortstop, Boone said.
Even with their packed IL, the Yankees have been producing in the field. Sanchez said through a translator.
Added Boone. "They're on a six-game winning streak, and have taken eight of their past nine."
"We never put our heads down at all, even with all the injuries." "We've got a lot of good players in there that are capable of getting this thing done, so we'll keep doing that."
