Sept. 22: Scott Effross is back from IL

Before Thursday’s game between the Red Sox and the Yankees, Effross got a call to return to the active roster. He was put on the injured list on August 22 (backdated to August 21) with what manager Aaron Boone called a small right shoulder strain at the time.

In 8 1/3 innings, Effross has a 3.24 earned run average, eight strikeouts, and seven hits allowed in eight games with New York. His return to the latest Yankees roster is good news for fans.

Sept. 22: Zack Britton is back after 60-day injury rest

After having Minor League rehab games, Britton is back. He has pitched 6 2/3 innings with an earned run average of 1.35 in eight MiLB games. Britton had Tommy John surgery in September 2021. He is now back on the latest Yankees roster.

Sept. 22: Miguel Andujar on assignment

Shohei Ohtani of the Angels won the 2018 American League Rookie of the Year Award. Andujar came in second, hitting .297/.328/.527 with 47 doubles, 27 homers, and 92 RBIs. But injuries and a lack of opportunities have hurt him since that impressive debut, and he was DFA’d because of it.

Since the start of the 2019 season, Andujar has played in 105 big league games and hit .228/.255/.318 with eight home runs and 26 RBIs. Earlier this year, he asked for a trade. There was no expectation of him continuing on the latest Yankees roster.

Sept. 22: Wandy Peralta sent to 15-day IL starting from September 19

Peralta hadn’t been able to play in the last two games because of a back problem. Manager Aaron Boone said that the problem has come up on and off over the past four to six weeks. Peralta got an MRI to find out what was wrong, and the manager felt that it was “not serious.” Peralta can return to the latest Yankees roster on October 4, when the Yankees go to Arlington to play the Rangers.


10-day and 15-day IL

Wandy Peralta (left thoracic spine tightness)
Expected return: Possibly around October 4

Latest: On September 22, Peralta was put on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to September 19). Aaron Boone, the team’s manager, said that Peralta hadn’t been able to play in the team’s last two games because of the problem, which had been happening for the last few weeks. The manager said that the scan ruled out anything “serious” and that he was hopeful that Peralta would be able to play again on October 4.

Andrew Benintendi (broken bone in right hand)
Expected return: Possibly October

Benintendi said on September 22 that he is hoping to return to active duty during the postseason. According to him:

“Overall, it feels pretty decent. I haven’t had a setback yet, so I’ll keep going the course and see how it plays out. … It stinks that I can’t be out there with the guys. Watching isn’t as fun as playing.”

Benintendi had surgery in New York on September 6 to fix the broken hook of his right hamate bone. He hurt his right wrist when he took a swing at Tropicana Field on September 2. Since then, he has been wearing an air cast to protect it.

What should the Yankees do to avoid such an injury-riddled season in the future? What is your view about the latest Yankees roster?
