ANAHEIM, California. – On the day that the New York Yankees finally got a boost from their 13-member injury list, manager Aaron Boone released some less promising news about two other stars in the air.
Boone, outfielder Clint Frazier is on the injury list on Thursday for a left ankle injury that surfaced earlier this week and was more spirited than previously thought.
An MRI showed "enough there" to shut down Frazier, Boone said
"Some partial tears and stuff that will cost him the 10 days," Boone said, adding that at the time he did not know what exactly was torn. "The good news is that we feel that [the IL stint] will be short. [Doctors] feels like it's a 1
Several hours before announcing the update on Frazier, Boone revealed that the recovery of outfielder and designated striker Giancarlo Stanton has hit a hook after an arm injury. Although the left biceps trunk that landed Stanton at the IL on April 1 is completely healed, Boone said on Wednesday that a separate "residual" shoulder problem had cropped up.
Boone did not specify the type of injury, but said Stanton In recent days, he has been dealing with "stuff" in his left shoulder.
"He just had it," Boone said.
Earlier in the 2013 season, when he was at the Miami Marlins, Stanton was scratched out of a game due to a sore left shoulder. He was listed as a day after day injury for the next six days before returning to the lineup. During his major league career, no other shoulder discomfort was formally diagnosed.
After arriving with the rest of the club in Anaheim this week, Stanton had a cortisone intake, Boone said.
Day two or three are not swinging, "said Boone.
The Yankees will allow the effects of the shot to continue in Stanton for a little while before he can pick up a racket Leaving Southern California while the rest of the team travels to Northern California for its scheduled three-game series with the San Francisco Giants.
The Stanton-born Stanton has grown accustomed to other injuries in Southern California in the past, and the Yankees will allow him to do so for the next few days, when the Bronx bombers complete their three-city road trip with a visit to Phoenix for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Stanton will join them.
"We have already thought, while returning from [the biceps injury] treat as best we can so that it does not become a long-lasting problem if w I can help him, "Boone said.
It is not known exactly when Stanton injured his shoulder, but the Yankees can tell the moment Frazier injured himself. It was in the middle of the series of Monday's series when he clumsily put his foot into second base as he retreated in a rebound attempt.
Frazier, 23, was visibly hobbled by the injury, but played through the rest of the game. He also said that he believed he was good enough to play at the ankle.
Frazier beats .324 with six homers and 17 RBIs in the 18 games since he was called for Stanton.
Apart from what he got, he believed in an expected free day on Tuesday. Frazier said the only other thing that would keep him from future lineups would be if the ankle had been broken. The Yankees apparently also had a somewhat favorable initial prognosis.
"At first, when the doctor [Monday] saw him, he did not feel that he needed any tests," Boone said Wednesday afternoon before the results of the MRI came back. "And then somehow we decided proactively (19459018) when he had something black and blue in it: Hey, let's just make sure we handle this thing as best we can and make sure we have all the answers
Both injury updates came on a day when the Yankees reintroduced catcher Gary Sanchez after having preferred calf loading for the left calf on the 10-day IL.
6: 5 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
"We felt pretty conservative in our treatment," Boone said of Sanchez's injury. "Obviously very excited to get him back. It was good to put his name in the lineup, no question. I'm looking forward to getting him back in the fight and helping us win games. "
Sanchez started at Catcher and beat fourth Wednesday Before Sanchez went on 10-day IL on April 12, Sanchez fought along six homers .268.
In addition to Sanchez's return, the Yankees had further promising injuries on Wednesday, Boone said third baseman Miguel Andujar (small labrum rip) in his rehab facility at the plant Teams in Tampa, Florida, are "running really well" and tend to refrain from surgery.
He still needs to do a formal re-evaluation of that, but it seems the injury is best cured by himself Being able to stay in the field and avoid a season's end.
"This weekend there is a chance that he might get some bats in a longer spring and then maybe make a decision about meets a rehab job. "The manager said."
Together with Andujar, Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (left calf strand) and midfielder Aaron Hicks (feeling low back) could also be in a rehab game, Boone said, as Hicks threw dice from the field and [http://wwwmyspacecom/watch?v=31959002] All three players have recovered in Tampa along with shortstop Didi Gregorius, who is "making progress on what we expected from his offseason Tommy John" surgery, recently Gregorius made throw-throws from shortstop, said Boone.
The Yankees produce despite their packed IL on the field, they have won six games and have won eight of their last nine.
"We never lowered our heads, despite all the injuries", Sanchez said through an interpreter.
Boone added, "We have a lot of good players there who are capable of doing this, so let's just do it."
