Beat-up New York Yankees outpitch Detroit Tigers, 3-1

Beat-up New York Yankees outpitch Detroit Tigers, 3-1

Everyone is probably hoping this is an April Fools joke but I don't think the Yankees would straight up lie about this sort of thing for the yuks: the club just tweeted that it has placed Giancarlo Stanton on the injured list with a strained bicep. Boone said Andujar has a "small labrum tear" and surgery could be in play - but he added that there is optimism that Andujar won't need surgery if it's treated conservatively. The physical tests on my shoulder came back with good results. The Yankees were forced to start Mike Tauchman, who is 28 years old and played 52 career major-league games before this season, in left field Monday.

After only four games, it's clear that players who were supposed to provide depth will see plenty of playing time over the next few weeks, if not longer. But when Andujar was absent from defensive drills before Monday's game, he was sent for an MRI that revealed the tear.

Miguel Andujar is hopeful he can avoid surgery and return to the New York Yankees' lineup this year.

"I was just just expressing that I was disappointed", he said. While his overall production wasn't bad, Stanton failed to meet the lofty expectations that accompanied him to NY after a 2017 season with the Miami Marlins in which the slugger hit.281 with 59 home runs, 132 RBIs and a 1.007 OPS.

Judge's injury caused him to miss 50 crucial regular season games.

Outfielder Clint Frazier was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. "Just worked for six weeks [in spring training] to get here, plus the offseason". In addition, pitcher CC Sabathia is expected to go on the injured list after completing a five-game suspension for hitting a batter with a pitch last September.

He hit.143 with no homers and eight RBIs in 41 plate appearances during spring training this year but simplified his mechanics and started to hit at the minor league complex in the last 10 days.
