Non-displaced fracture, displaced hopes? LeMahieu injury casts shadow on Yankees


Table of Contents

The New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone delivered sobering news to reporters on Saturday, revealing that infielder DJ LeMahieu has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot. LeMahieu, initially placed on the 10-day injured list with what was labeled as a right foot contusion, faces an uncertain timeline for return as he awaits re-imaging in two weeks.

Boone emphasized the severity of LeMahieu’s injury, stating that it will require careful monitoring and evaluation. Despite the setback, LeMahieu remains committed to maintaining his hitting regimen to the extent his injury allows, according to Boone. However, his absence leaves a void at third base, where a combination of Oswaldo Cabrera and Jon Berti will step in to fill the gap for the Yankees. Cabrera took the reins on Saturday, assuming responsibilities at the hot corner.

The injury compounds an already challenging start to the season for the Yankees, who must also contend with the absence of ace Gerrit Cole due to elbow problems and limitations on star slugger Aaron Judge stemming from an abdominal injury. As the team navigates these early hurdles, their resilience and depth will be put to the test as they seek redemption following a disappointing previous season.

Stay tuned for further updates on LeMahieu’s recovery and the Yankees’ roster adjustments as they embark on their campaign to reclaim their position among baseball’s elite.
