Carlos Rodon, who is suffering from a back issue, was given an injection and the team is optimistic that he will resume throwing this weekend. Luis Severino, who is dealing with a right lat strain, is scheduled to begin his on Wednesday, although he expressed a preference to pitch on Thursday night instead.

Josh Donaldson has started taking batting practice on the field, but he will likely go through an intensive week of baseball activities before starting a rehab assignment at the end of this week or next week, according to Boone. Giancarlo Stanton, who has a left hamstring strain, is running on the field and is probably a week behind Donaldson, said Boone.

Here are more details about the Yankees’ latest injury scenario.

Yankees move Oswaldo Peraza to 10-day IL

On Tuesday, the New York Yankees infielder Oswald Peraza was transferred to IL to make way for Aaron Judge. During Wednesday’s walk-off victory over the Guardians, Peraza hurt his ankle trying to steal second base. Since then, he has made slight improvement by having additional batting practice and baseball activities, but is yet to appear in a Yankees game.

The Yankees’ manager, Aaron Boone, reaffirmed Peraza’s availability for pinch-hitting situations on Tuesday. However, the ankle issue has kept him on the bench. According to Boone, Peraza’s ability to move laterally on defense and chase balls down in the side-to-side hole have both been hindered by the injury.

“There’s still that hesitancy and rigid, residual feeling of it,” Boone told. “He’s been hitting, running great. He actually looks good taking ground balls and everything, but I think he’s still got that apprehension. So we’ve been a little reluctant to go to him because of not wanting to put him in the field.”

Sending Peraza on the Yankees injury list gives the infielder extra time to recover from his injury at his own pace. Boone anticipates that Peraza will be ready to return to action after his IL stint concludes. In addition, he may start a rehabilitation assignment in the coming days.

Aaron Judge is out of Yankees injury list

The Yankees’ captain is finally off the injured list. He’s raring to go, full bore, and is chomping at the bit to play every game. But Boone isn’t going to throw him in the deep end without a life jacket. He’ll be keeping a watchful eye on him. Making sure he’s not pushing himself too hard and taking into account designated hitter days and off days. After all, we don’t want to risk him ending up back on the injured list. But let’s be honest, Judge is a powerhouse and we can expect to see him in the lineup every day. This is just the boost our struggling offense needs to get back on track.

Carlos Rodon eases into progress

He is feeling a bit of a twinge in his back. But he’s taken the necessary steps to get himself back in tip-top shape. Rodon had a cortisone injection to help ease the pain. Currently,  he is taking a little breather for the next couple of days to let it do its magic. However, let’s not forget that Rodon is a fighter. So he’ll be back in action in no time, starting up his exercise routine again come Friday.

Ashley Rodon, the wife of New York Yankees pitcher Carlos Rodon, pushed back against a recent report from Jomboy’s “Talkin Yanks” podcast on Monday. The report cited unnamed sources within the Yankees organization, who allegedly claimed that Carlos Rodon would not pitch in a game this season.

If everything goes smoothly, Carlos can get back to his throwing program this weekend. And with Rodon’s determination, there’s no doubt he’ll be building towards victory in no time!

Josh Donaldson is ready

Donaldson is about to take things up a notch. He has been putting in the work – defensive drills, batting practice, and everything. And now, he’s ready to ramp things up to an “intense” level of baseball activities. It’s like going from a leisurely stroll to a full-on sprint – Josh is ready to kick things into high gear.

According to Boone, we don’t want to rush things. We want to make sure Josh is fully ready to go before we send him off to do battle on the field. So if all goes according to plan, we’ll be sending him out on a rehab assignment before you know it. Of course, it’s been a while since we’ve seen Donaldson on the field – April 5th, to be exact. That’s a whole 30 games he’s missed (and counting). But with Josh’s determination and work ethic, there’s no doubt he’ll be back in the game and better than ever. 

Luis Severino wants a quick return

Luis Severino is a starter for the New York Yankees.

Severino, who suffered low-grade lat strain is about to start his rehab assignment. He will be pitching for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on Wednesday, and we couldn’t be more excited. The right-hander last week he threw 40 pitches over three innings in a live session at the Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa. 

Now, Severino may need a couple more rehab assignments to get his pitch count up to speed before he makes his 2023 debut for the Yankees and returns to the rotation. 

Giancarlo Stanton is recovering well

The man with the muscles, the one who hits home runs like it’s nobody’s business is “doing well.” His hamstring is on the mend, and he’s back in action. Now, Stanton may be seen in rehab doing like Donaldson in a week. It’s been 15 games since Stanton last played, and we’ve definitely been feeling his absence.

  1. Fragile players unlike the Dyanasty years. Remember Paul O’Neill running down a ball in the gap in the World Series with a hamstring injury? Chances of seeing that today are about ZERO. Thurman Munson hit in the head, and middle of the back against the Red Sox in ’78…missed not 1 inning. How on earth did they survive to see tomorrow’s game? Lol now Stanton misses 15 games so far with a strained hammy? Not a pull, a strain…gimme a break. Pathetic how today’s players view their role on the team with no care for a legacy…Stanton could’ve been one of the games greatest…fragile and no burning desire, 230 million reasons why he doesn’t care, and why I want to see Volpe, Oswaldo and all the other kids…

  2. Yes, back in the day, players played hurt, injured more often, etc. However, they did not make the kind of money players make nowadays. Therefore, they need to protect their investments. Plus it’s also more or less reinforced by MLB as well.
