Yankees injury saga continues

The Yankees have once again found themselves riddled with injuries only a third of the way through the 60 game season.

David Cone said it best on Thursday afternoon’s game against the Rays: “The Yankees’ version of 2020 is telling 2019 to hold my beer at this point.”

After the big three of Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge and DJ LeMahieu went on the Injured List, along with Tommy Kahnle, Kyle Higashioka and Zack Britton, three more players were added on Friday.

Gleyber Torres was removed from Thursday’s game with some tightness in the leg and sent for an MRI. Images reveled grade one strains — the least severe — on both the left quad and hamstring.

Next, James Paxton complained of some forearm and elbow tightness after his last pitch of the game and was also sent for an MRI. His images showed a grade one strain of the left forearm flexor, so it appears he dodged a bullet as this appears to be a muscular problem and not related to the ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow.

Finally, Luis Avilán was sent for an MRI after giving up game winning run to the Rays in the late innings. The MRI showed left shoulder inflammation.

Yankee fans might be freaking out, but Aaron Boone seemed pretty optimistic during a WFAN interview today.

It feels like the Yankees injured list goes on forever. With Luis Severino and Kahnle both dealing with Tommy John recovery, the IL count is currently at 10 — almost half a roster.

Although it’s good news that Judge is coming back soon, it still feels like “Next Man Up” almost everywhere else on the diamond.
