Yankees Add Clint Frazier To Already Bloated IL
Stop me if you've heard this one before, the New York Yankees add an impact player to the Injury List. It seems the second there's even a little bit of good news for the Yankees when it comes to injuries there's bad news that comes with it. As soon as the Yankees get catcher Gary Sanchez back they lose outfielder Clint Frazier to the 10 day IL.
Frazier injured his ankle Monday against the Angels and according to Yankees' manager Aaron Boone an MRI showed the outfielder's ankle had "Some partial tears and stuff that it's going to cost him the 10 days." The belief is the ankle will only keep Frazier out 10 to 14 days.
The bad news doesn't stop there for the Bronx Bombers, outfielder Giancarlo Stanton doesn't appear to be as close to returning as once thought. Even though Stanton's left biceps strain is healed, now there's a shoulder issue. According to an article from ESPN's Colely Harvey:
The Yankees will let the effects of the shot settle into Stanton a little longer before he's able to pick up a bat. The plan is to leave the superstar in Southern California this weekend while the rest of the team travels to Northern California for its scheduled three-game series with the San Francisco Giants.
"We figured now while he's down coming back from [the biceps injury], let's make sure to treat this as best we can so it doesn't become a lingering issue if we can help it," Yankees' manager Aaron Boone said.
The IL giveth and the IL taketh away.
