NEW YORK — The New York Yankees have lost Zack Britton and Clay Holmes to arm injuries but are close to regaining the services of a crucial member of their bullpen. Here are the latest Yankees injury updates.

Wandy Peralta threw a bullpen session on Thursday and will throw another one on Sunday. The Yankees plan to activate Peralta in Texas the following week. Tightness in the left side of Peralta’s thoracic spine has been a problem for him and he moved to the Yankees injury list on September 22.

This was revealed by Yankees manager Aaron Boone before Friday’s game against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

“Then we’ll decide if we’re going to have him pitch in Texas, which is an option. Or if we want to just have him start getting some live situations. So, that’s something we’ll kind of tackle as the next few days unfold.”

The Dominican baseball player, who is now 31 years old, has appeared in 56 games so far this season and has a 2.72 earned run average.

Other recent Yankees injury updates include the following:

Miguel Castro, RHP

Latest: Castro was back at Yankee Stadium after completing his rehabilitation assignment. He had a strain in his right shoulder and played in six rehab games in the minor league.

Miguel King, RHP

Latest: King, who had broken his elbow to move to the Yankees injury list, reported that doctors told him there was no damage to his ulnar collateral ligament and that he would not require Tommy John surgery. King anticipates having a typical offseason full of workouts and beginning next year’s spring training on the scheduled date.

Andrew Benintendi, LF

Latest: On Saturday, Benintendi will take his first swings in dry conditions. He had a right hamate bone surgery and is recovering from that injury. It does not appear likely that he will return prior to the AL Championship Series.

Matt Carpenter, DH/UTL

Latest: The fracture in Carpenter’s right foot has healed to the point where he was able to take swings during batting practice on Friday. However, it appeared as though he was using more of his upper body than he normally would if he were in perfect health. The Yankees have not ruled out the possibility of giving Matt Carpenter at-bats during their series against the Rangers in Texas. However, the club is also considering sending him to their taxi squad camp at Double-A Somerset.

What is the reason behind the Yankees injury list getting bigger this season?
