The Yankees injured list claimed another victim on Friday, while letting one go in the process.
Roster Moves: Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees returned from rehab and reinstated 1B Luke Voit from the 10-day injured list and placed INF Gio Urshela on the 10-day injured list with a left groin injury (retroactive to 8/29).
Gio Urshela has fallen victim to 10-day IL with a left groin injury. With that, Luke Voitwas reinstated after a successful rehab stint from his recent abdominal injury; in 4 games, he batted .471 (8-17) with 2 HR’s, 2 doubles and 4 RBI’s. He also played the field and experienced no issues.
Urshela’s addition to the list will set an MLB record for most players in a single season to reach the injured list: 36 separate instances. I’d say with a 88-47 record entering September, the Yankees have certainly made due.
