Yankees Season!! Injuries & 10 Games into Spring Training Nonsense Report!!
(03/02/2020) – 10 games in the Yankees are 6-3-1, after the tie against Pittsburg the Yankees won 6 straight games. But regardless of the Yankees spring training, all the injuries that the Yankees are dealing with are what’s being put out in the news. The 1st half of the season will be here in no time so let’s talk some Yankees Nonsense:
Luis Severino – Out for the season
James Paxton – Back injury – Expectations between later April – Early May, timetable is unknown.
Aaron Judge – Shoulder injury – being evaluated, hopeful for the start of the season
Giancarlo Stanton – Calf injury – timetable is unknown due to the lack of information of the injury. Hopeful for the start of the season.
Aaron Hicks – Recent Tommy John Surgery – rehabbing and should be returning some time this season.
Hurt/ not 100%:
Masahiro Tanaka – is still dealing with some issues, while he is pitching, he still very limited therefore expectations and usage for Tanaka will have to adjusted/ manage well to avoid further injuries.
Miguel Andujar – Has been a bat 13 times and has 1 Home Run for his only RBI so far in spring training. Andujar progress have been notice in his willing to adapt and be able to play wherever the Yankees are plugging him into whether in the infield or in the outfield. The Yankees may be looking to use Andujar as rotational player to play put in wherever needed.
Gleyber Torres – Is picking up right where he left in last year offensively. Expectations for Torres will be high this year and he may have to carry more of the load if or when Stanton and Judge may not be in the lineup.
Estevan Florial – With 11 chances at bat has being efficient with 1 home run and 3 RBIs coming up when the Yankees need him the most. Should be a guy the Yankees should look to keep close eye on.
Gerritt Cole – is the Yankees clear Ace and the main job here is to make sure that the Yankees don’t burn him out and have him run out of gas for the playoffs.
J.A. Happ – Has pitched the most innings for the Yankees with 5, in which he has 5 strikeouts and a 1.8 ERA. Happ’s is looking as fresh as ever, the Yankees will need a great, almost unreal, 1st half of the season from Happ.
Jordan Montgomery – Leads in strikeouts with 7. Montgomery has been a small light of good news for the Yankees being that he is coming back from injury and showing that he can be a reliable starter for the Yankees.
Adonis Rosa – Got some playing time last season, pitching 2 innings and getting 2 strikeouts. Rosa should be getting more chances on the plate for the Yankees.
Deivi Garcia – like Rosa, has been a guy with little regular season experience but in a limited sample has shown that he can hold his own on the plate
Notable players that have stood out, that need more playing time.
