Minor league injury update: 8/3/15

With the New York Yankees having an off-day on Monday before their three-game series against the Boston Red Sox, some of their minor league prospects are looking to find their way back on the field, as they have recently been sidelined by injuries.

According to Chad Jennings of LoHud.com, here is the latest injury updates surrounding some notable Yankees prospects:

Eric Jagielo, the Yankees top draft selection in the 2013 draft (26th overall), underwent a lateral meniscus scope on his right knee last week. The club expects Jagielo to resume baseball activities in eight weeks, and the team has said he has been feeling better since the procedure.

Before suffering the injury, the 23-year-old posted a slash line of .284/.347/.495 in 58 games for the Trenton Thunder.

The Yankees’ other first round pick in 2013, Ian Clarkin, has been sidelined due to inflammation in his left elbow. Although some speculated that the young prospect would need surgery to repair the injury,but as of now that doesn’t seem to be the case. Recently, the left-hander has been taking part in a throwing program, and has been throwing with no complaints thus far.

A shoulder injury has sidelined outfielder Mason Williams, but the injury has taken longer than expected to heal. The 23-year-old will be reevaluated by Dr. Chris Ahmad during this weeks.

During the 2015 season, Williams was with the big-league club for a short period of time, hitting .286 in eight games. In his combined playing time with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre, Williams has posted a slash line of .318/.397/.398 in 54 games.

Earlier in the season, Jacob Lindgren underwent surgery to remove bone spurs in his left elbow. The former 2014 second round draft pick is scheduled to begin a throwing program next week, and the Yankees fully expect the left-hander to become an option for the team this season.

Before suffering the injury, Lindgren appeared in seven games for the big league club. In his 15 appearances in Triple-A, the 22-year-old posted a 1-1 record with a 1.23 ERA.
