On the day when New York Yankees finally got one backup from their list of 13 people, manager Aaron Boone revealed some less promising news about two other hit stars.
According to Boone, Outfitter Clint Frazer will go to the list of injured people on Thursday for the left ankle trauma that appeared this week and is more temperamental than previously thought.
MRT has revealed "enough there" to close Fraser, Boone said.
"Some partial tears and things that will cost him ten days," Boone said, adding that he did not know then the exact nature of what was partially torn. – The good news is we feel that way [the IL stint] will be short. [Doctors] I feel like something from 10-14 days. Maybe a little less. So we do not feel like something long.
A few hours before the announcement of the Fraser update, Boone revealed that the outfitter and the determined recovery of striker Giancarlo Stanton from a shoulder injury had struggled. Although the left biceps strain, which unloads Stanton to IL on April 1, has fully healed, Boone said on Wednesday that a separate, "residual" problem in the left shoulder had occurred.
Boon did not specify the nature of the trauma, but said that in recent days Stanton has been dealing with "things" on his left shoulder.
"He just did," Boone said.
Once at the start of the 2013 season while he was with Miami Marlins, Stenton was scratched by a sore left arm. Over the next six days, he was referred to as the daily injury before returning to the squad. During his long career in the league he was not officially diagnosed with other shoulder diseases.
After arriving in Anaheim with the rest of the club earlier this week, Stenton had a shot of cortisone, Boone said.
"He's on day two or three so he does not swing," Boone said.
The Yankees will let the effects of the shot go to Stenton for a little longer before they can take 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 their planned three-game series with the San Francisco Giants.
Originally from the suburbs of Los Angeles, Stenton has escaped from other injuries in Southern California in the past, and the Yankees will allow him to do so in the next few days. When Bronx bombers end their trip with three cities visiting Phoenix to face Arizona Diamondback on Tuesday, Stanton will join them.
"Now we know when he comes back [the biceps injury]Let us take care of this as well as possible so that it does not become a lasting problem if we can help him, "Boone said.
Although it is unclear when Stenton injured his shoulder, the Yankees can determine the moment Fraser was injured. He was in the middle of the show on Monday when he uncomfortably pushed his foot on a second base while retiring to try to kick.
23-year-old Fraser was visibly stunned by the trauma, but played through the rest of the game. He also said on Tuesday he believes he is good enough to play the ankle.
Frazier fights with .324 with six home runners and 17 RBIs in the 18 games since he was called Stanton.
Aside from having received something he thought was expected on Tuesday, Fraser said the only other thing that would keep him out of the future is if the ankle is broken. Yankees obviously also had a very favorable initial forecast.
"Initially, when the doctor saw him [Monday], he did not feel as if he had to get some tests, "Boone said on Wednesday afternoon before the MRI results returned. [Tuesday]when there was some black and blue there, he decided, "Hey, let's just make sure that this thing is covered as well as possible and make sure we have all the answers we need."
Both of these injuries updates came on a day when the Yankees recovered the Gary Sanchez hunters following their limitation of the 10-day IL for the left calf strain.
Sanchez entered 0-for-4 in the Yankees 6-5 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
"I felt we were quite conservative about how we treat it," Boone said of Sanchez's injury. "He is obviously very excited to come back and it's a good idea to write his name to the squad, no doubt, and we look forward to returning to the fight and helping us keep playing games."
Sanchez kicks off at the hunter and runs out on the fourth Wednesday. Before going to the 10-day IL on April 12, Sanchez fights with 268 with six home runners.
In addition to Sanchez's return, the Yankees had other more promising news on Wednesday. Boone said that the third pool, Miguel Anduhar (a small tear in Labraham), "does very well" in his rehabilitation team at Tampa, Florida, and moves in the direction that he does not need an operation.
He still needs a formal reassessment to determine this, but it seems that damage can be best managed on its own. This will allow Andujar to stay on the field and avoid the season ending problem.
"There is a chance this weekend to get some bats in the extended spring, and then you can decide on rehabilitation from there," the manager said.
Together with Anduhar, buddy Troy Tulowitzki (left calf strain) and central player Aaron Hicks (lower back tightening) may also be close to playing a rehab play, Boone said. Hicks made throws from the field and worked, and soon will face the live boarding.
All three players are recovering in Tampa, along with girlfriend Didi Gregorius, who "continues to progress as we hoped" from Tommy John's operation. Gregorius recently made shorts, "said Boone.
Even with their trampled IL, Yankees produce on the pitch. They are on a winning six-game series and have taken eight of their last nine.
"We never run our heads, even with all the injuries," Sanchez said through a translator.
Boone was added: "We have very good players who are capable of doing this, so we will continue to do so."
