The New York Yankees are currently in Seattle for a three-game series against the Mariners. With two back-to-back 10-run games, the visiting team has sealed the series with a commanding performance. However, the Yankees continue to deal with injury issues back in the clubhouse. Prior to the second game against the Mariners, the Bombers announced as many as four roster moves.
The Bombers have shared health updates on two of its regular starters, Harrison Bader and Jose Trevino, through the said roster moves. Bader, who made a strong comeback post oblique issues, suffered from a hamstring strain on Monday. On the other hand, lead catcher Jose Trevino has already been serving time on IL due to a hamstring injury. While we have some positive news on Trevino, Bader seems to have faced yet another major setback.
Jose Trevino Back In The Lineup As Harrison Bader Enters 10-Day IL
Ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Seattle Mariners, the New York Yankees announced four major roster moves. Firstly, lead catcher Jose Trevino, who had been in IL for the past two weeks, has been reinstated without any restrictions. Trevino pulled up his hamstring and entered a 10-day IL stint, which came to an end yesterday. Catcher Ben Rortvedt, who came in as a replacement for Jose, has been optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Trevino has been one of the Yankee’s leading scorers with the bat. Hence, his return will bring along a major boost to the Bombers’ lineup.
Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves:— New York Yankees (@Yankees) May 31, 2023
• Reinstated C Jose Trevino (#39) from the 10-day injured list.
• Recalled INF/OF Franchy Cordero (#33) from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
• Optioned C Ben Rortvedt to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
On the other hand, the Yankees have received a major blow as center fielder Harrison Bader is headed for a second IL stint. Bader strained in hamstring while running on the base path on Monday. The team immediately pulled him out and sent him for scans. The scans sealed Bader’s faith as he made his way to a 10-day IL. Losing the center fielder remains a big blow to the Yankees’ offense. Ever since his return from an oblique injury, Bader has attained the form of his life. His electric field plays, and towering hits made him a fan favorite in the Bronx. Regardless, for now, the team has called up OF Franchy Cordero from the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill up his palace.
Yankees Manager Provides Probable Return Timeline On Harrison Bader
The New York Yankees have faced the inevitable. Center fielder, Harrison Bader, is headed to a 10-day IL due to a low-grade hamstring injury. Bader felt some discomfort on Tuesday while running on base paths, and MRI scans declared a low-grade hamstring injury. Meanwhile, Yankees manager, Aaron Boone, has shared further updates on the center fielder’s injury status.
Aaron Boone said the MRI scans did not state anything major. But the diagnosis was enough for a 10-day IL stint. Moreover, the skipper added that it would probably be a few weeks, to say the least, before the outfielder could resume his field duties. He said a guy like Bader functions solely on his legs. Hence, protecting his legs remains the main focus of the club. Right now, the Yankees will use whatever depth they have available and make the most out of it.
