Miguel Castro is the latest Yankees pitcher to ride through an MRI tube. The right-handed reliever has been battling some shoulder problems for the past few days. He got up to warm up in Thursday night’s defeat, but never got into the game.
“Yeah, he’s barking a little shoulder and then warming up last night. So we’re going to send him in for an MRI and just try and see what we get,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone told Red Sox at the stadium. Said before the first match of Friday night’s series against
Castro hasn’t played a game since Sunday, when he conceded two, conceding four runs without recording an out in a Yankees defeat to the Red Sox.
“He’s been dealing with it for the past few days. We were there for a few days away from him and then he was active last night,” Boone said, “but I guess we want to see what we have.” ” After Friday’s game the Yankees found out what they had.
“I think it’s going to be an IL situation,” updated Boone. “However, I don’t have a diagnosis and a time frame yet.”
“I mean, it’s inevitable,” Boone said of the pitcher’s injuries. “I feel optimistic about most of the things we’re talking about that have happened here recently. (optimistic) that we’ll be able to get through them and those people are still a big part of it We’ve been quite healthy, I think for the most part. We’ve obviously lost a few guys (like Chad Green) for the season, obviously it was a big blow. Some others have been let down and we have taken some others back. That’s part of it, but hoping for the best and hope it goes well.”
Castro, who was acquired by the Yankees in spring training, has made 30 strikeouts in 27.1 innings this season, making 32 appearances. He is carrying a 4.00 epoch.
Boone said the Yankees are waiting for second and third opinions on Severino, who had an MRI on Thursday.
“It’s a very mild lat strain according to the MRI readings. We have some doctors who want to confirm, so we haven’t got a full answer yet,” Boone said. “So I think the MRI was great overall, but we’ll see when they get together.”
old time game
The Yankees will celebrate their old times on July 30, but they won’t have an actual game this year. Instead there will be an extended introduction with video tributes on the field.
Participating players include Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera, 1978 Cy Young Award winner Ron Guidry, 1998 World Series Game 1 hero Tino Martinez, five-time Yankees All-Stars Willie Randolph and Bernie Williams, the first in Major League history. Be the first player. To win a batting title, the Gold Glove and World Series in the same year, would be presented to the crowd before the game on that day. Current Yankees manager Aaron Boone and assistant hitting coach Hensley Mullens will take on Shane Spencer for the first time.
Whether the Yankees may bring back the actual game in the future is yet to be decided.
no home run derby
Giancarlo Stanton had indicated he was going to be in the home run derby last week, but he ultimately decided not to participate. It wasn’t because of pressure from the Yankees.
“It was a G call all the way. We would have been completely behind him if he wanted to or was going to do it,” Boone said. And I think he took everyone into account and decided not to.”
friday night out
Josh Donaldson, who hurt his arm in Thursday night’s loss, was not in Friday night’s lineup but came off the bench for a pinch-hit at-bat that K. Donaldson’s finger was finished on Friday afternoon. ,
I think the point is just to stop using him unnecessarily,” Boone said of the strip. “So I really don’t think it’s a big deal. I could have easily put him there today but just decided to be a little cautious with it and keep him out today, but I hope he will be an active player for us. ,
Aaron Hicks, who left Tuesday night’s game after fouling a ball with his shin, was also out of the lineup, but could return on Saturday. He also came late during Friday night’s loss, going on to deliberately set up a double play before striking out to end the game. ,
He is going through a full routine today. He was able to do a little bit yesterday. He came into my office a few hours ago and felt really good about the progress he had made,” Boone said. “And the idea was to go for a complete one-of-a-kind today and if it went well.” There is a possibility of a player being off the bench. Whereas last night it was just an emergency.”
