The New York Yankees‘ manager, Aaron Boone, shared updates on the injury recoveries of Aaron Judge, Nestor Cortes, and Willie Calhoun before the team’s three-game series against the Texas Rangers.

The injuries surrounding the Yankees have raised significant concerns among fans, particularly in light of their recent defeats to teams like the Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners by wide margins.

Aaron Boone has provided various responses to address these questions. Now, let’s examine the specifics of their most recent news.

Aaron Judge’s recovery from a toe injury shows positive progress. During a pregame interview, Aaron Boone mentioned that Judge has recently been engaging in pool workouts and focusing on balance and strength exercises.

Aaron Boone emphasized that these activities were impossible for Judge just four to five days ago, indicating significant improvement in his condition. The latest PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection has played a role in this positive turn.

The team is hopeful that Judge will continue to improve and, by the end of the week, can resume some throwing and light-hitting activities, marking a significant step forward in his recovery process.

Regarding Nestor Cortes, Aaron Boone provided an update stating, “Nestor, it was in his throwing program, probably a week away from getting on a mound.” This indicates that Cortes is making progress in his recovery.

It’s important to note that Cortes was placed on the 15-day injured list on June 8, with the placement retroactive to June 5, due to a left rotator cuff strain.

However, Boone highlighted that the initial three days of Cortes’ throwing program have been positive, suggesting his rehabilitation is going well.

Willie Calhoun: Out for ten days

After assessing Willie Calhoun’s left quad strain, the Yankees placed him on the 10-day injured list. This move comes after his injury during Wednesday’s victory over the Seattle Mariners when he experienced discomfort while running out a ground ball.

Regarding Calhoun’s absence, Yankees manager Aaron Boone provided the update and stated that he would be sidelined due to the left quad strain. The team will closely monitor his recovery and determine the timeline for his return based on his progress.

The Yankees have recalled Oswaldo Cabrera from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill the void left by Willie Calhoun’s injury. Cabrera will step in to contribute while Calhoun is on the injured list.

Further details about Calhoun’s strain and how long he will be absent have yet to be disclosed. The team will rely on Boone’s guidance to manage the situation and adjust the roster during Calhoun’s recovery period.
