Another Yankee Is Put On The 10-Day IL
Okay, this is starting to get a bit ridiculous! The New York Yankees have been bitten once again by the injury bug. Giancarlo Stanton was the latest Yankee to be added to the Injury List earlier today with a strained bicep. He will now be joined by third baseman Miguel Andujar. The second-year third baseman will join Stanton, CC Sabathia, Delin Betances, Jacoby Ellsbury and Luis Severino as Bronx Bombers forced to miss time in this extremely young season. Andujar has a right shoulder strain.
It's still far too early to panic, even if it seems like just about everyone in pinstripes is getting injured. In a year when many, including Las Vegas, picked the Yankees to win the World series, the early health concerns are becoming a bit tough to live with. Clint Frazier is already on his way to the Bronx to cover the absence of Giancarlo Stanton, we'll wait to see who is "the next man up" to fill in for Andujar. There are now 10 Yankees on the IL.
