Yankees injury update: August 7

Prior to Wednesday night’s series finale against the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees announced some injury updates.

Here’s the latest updates regarding some of your favorite injured Yankees:

Dellin BetancesAs part of his throwing program, Betances threw his first flat ground session on Wednesday afternoon.

The 31-year-old threw all fastballs as part of his flat ground throwing session. Betances said that he felt good after he threw this afternoon.

CC SabathiaSabathia has been sidelined due to right knee pain, an injury that has hampered the left-hander in the past. As he looks to make a return to the mound, the Yankees anticipate that the veteran will throw a bullpen session at some point this weekend.

Luis SeverinoThe Yankees have been without their ace throughout the entire 2019 season, but Severino appears to be on the right track towards a return.

The 25-year-old has once again started throwing breaking pitches. He is expected to throw a bullpen session on Friday in Toronto. If all goes well, Severino will throw another bullpen session on Monday.

Giancarlo StantonStanton does not appear close to a return, but is making progress towards more strenuous baseball activities.

Stanton was able to throw and hit off a tee. The veteran outfielder has also been recently running on the anti-gravity treadmill as well.

Gleyber TorresOf course, we didn’t forget about Gleyber!

Torres has been dealing with “core issues” as of late. Prior to Wednesday’s game, it appeared as if the 22-year-old was heading to the Injured List, as Thairo Estrada made an appearance in the Yankees clubhouse.

However, Estrada was sent back to Triple-A, and a roster move was never made. It was found that Estrada was called up in case Torres needed an Injured List stint.

Torres underwent an MRI, which showed no sports hernia or strains. The Yankees are saying that Torres is “day-to-day,” and that the All-Star infielder is expected to travel with the team to Toronto.
