Yankees reliever Anthony Misiewicz, who experienced concussion symptoms after getting hit by a 100.6 mph line drive, was scheduled to travel back to New York with the team on Sunday, just two days after the incident.

According to Boone, the reliever arrived at PNC Park before Sunday’s game with a smile on his face and appeared to be in good spirits.

Boone mentioned that all the initial scans and tests have produced positive results. He added that they will continue to monitor the situation, and the player will undergo further evaluation when they return home.

Yankees confirm Pereira to return on Tuesday

Everson Pereira missed his fourth consecutive game on Sunday due to a leg issue caused by slipping on the stairs in Boston.

Boone provided an update on the player’s condition, stating that he is doing alright but remains day-to-day. He expressed hope that the player will be available for play on Tuesday, following today and the upcoming off day.

Montas pitches in first rehab game

Frankie Montas, who is recovering from shoulder surgery, pitched one inning for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out two on 17 pitches.

This marks the start of his rehab assignment, but it’s unlikely that he will return to the Yankees’ roster before hitting free agency this offseason.

Montas had shoulder surgery in February, and his appearance in the minors is likely aimed at preparing him for the upcoming season. As a pending free agent, he may be looking to showcase his abilities to potential suitors in the open market.

Montas, aged 30, was acquired by the Yankees from the Oakland Athletics in 2022, where he posted a 1-3 record with a 6.35 ERA in 39.2 innings for New York last season.

Over his career, he holds a 36-35 record with a 3.90 ERA and finished sixth in the American League Cy Young voting in 2021.
