His Yankees bar is coming off a miserable West Coast pitch which finished with a season-high sixth true detriment to the A’s, not to discuss several injuries sustained to pivotal players on both the big joining group and in the minors. The organization’s top prospect, Gleyber Torres, hyperextended his left bend in Saturday’s Triple-A RailRiders diversion in Buffalo.
Was there any china backing to take from the last week, when the Bombers went 1-6 against the Angels and A’s?
“Nope,” Yankees ubiquitous manager Brian Cashman pronounced Monday. “No positives from that trip. The only thing is we’re home. Trip’s over is the only positive.”
Cashman was still available the results of an MRI on Torres’ elbow, which group medicine Dr. Chris Ahmad was ostensible to perform Monday morning. The blue chip infield available harmed his bend shifting headfirst into home plate, and the group announced around Twitter Saturday that X-rays taken of Torres’ bend were negative.
“I’m certain we’ll do an MRI, which (Torres) didn’t get when he was up in Buffalo. We wish to make certain we get a full perspective of whatever is holding place. However, we don’t wish to make anything reduction or some-more of it. He hyperextended his bend and he’s hurt. X-rays were negative. If there’s any repairs we’ll find out shortly,” pronounced Cashman.
During the West Coast trip, lefty starter CC Sabathia landed on the 10-day infirm list with a stretched left hamstring after vacating from the Jun 13 diversion against the Angels (a 3-2 detriment in 11 innings). Right-handed reliever Adam Warren also was placed on the 10-day DL with a trapezius injury. Only starters Michael Pineda and Luis Severino done it by 6 innings in their starts during the highway trip, nonetheless both games finished with a Yankee loss. Ace Masahiro Tanaka was rocked again in his start against the A’s Saturday, giving up 3 homers (five runs total) in his 4 innings of work, nonetheless he did sniff 10 A’s. And outfielder Aaron Hicks (leg) was harmed in Thursday’s diversion and has not played since.
Cashman pronounced he expects Sabathia to be out at slightest 6 weeks, given the form of damage and the lefty’s age (36). As for Tanaka, the Yankee GM pronounced there is still no regard about any damage to the $155 million Japanese righthander, who is 5-7 with 6.34 ERA.
“There are no complaints. (Tanaka) is throwing as hard. The only thing we can tell you, he’s got bad results. Past that, there are no complaints, there’s no denote of damage and there’s no censure of something bothering him physically,” pronounced Cashman. “It’s up to him and us to fight by it.”
Cashman pronounced Hicks “has been feeling better,” but that he was scheduled to see a alloy in New York Monday to make certain there is zero some-more critical with his left leg injury. “Hicks took batting use on the margin on Sunday (in Oakland). we can’t guarantee (a Tuesday return) — hopefully earlier than later. Every day he’s been feeling better,” pronounced Cashman.
“A series of opposite things have occurred — we’ve had some injuries which have pushed guys out of their normal roles,” Cashman continued, referring to the pitching situation. “Because of diversion situations, we’ve had some extreme use, we’ve leaned on some guys, the bullpen got taxed and sleepy and therefore we had to put the round in certain guys’ hands and ask them to do things that would be above their expectations, and it didn’t work out. A multiple of being forced to give guys time to rest and cure so we don’t make things worse on us. Bottom line, we’ve had some injuries, and we didn’t play well. The outing is over so spin the page. Get a good off day and show up (Tuesday) to compete.”
Yes, the Bombers get a much-needed mangle Monday, but Cashman did vigilance one certain sign about his group — that despite new adversity, the Yankees are still in first place in the AL East, and they always come to the Stadium prepared to compete.
“The one good thing about this team, they’ve demonstrated many times over that they have no problem competing on a daily basis. Whether they’re at times exhausted, or banged up while they’re competing, the one thing you know, you’re going to get good effort. Look brazen to these guys getting a much-needed day of rest and getting back at it (Tuesday against the Angels),” pronounced Cashman.
