Berti, who had an MRI on Saturday, received a PRP injection to aid his recovery. The infielder also revealed his recovery could take “about 6-8 weeks,”.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone commented on the situation before the team’s 5-2 loss to the Padres on Sunday. “It’s going to be a while,” Boone said, without providing a specific timeline for Berti’s return.

Berti, who was seen with crutches and a walking boot on Sunday, had recently returned from a groin strain and was beginning to produce more consistently. He and Oswaldo Cabrera had formed a solid third-base tandem while DJ LeMahieu was sidelined.

Looking ahead

The Yankees were anticipating Berti to be a valuable bench piece upon LeMahieu’s return, but the injury has taken him out of the Yankees’ plans for now. Today, LeMahieu has been activated and is expected to rejoin the lineup as the Yankees start a series against the Angels in Anaheim. 

Additionally, Ian Hamilton has been activated, providing further reinforcement for the Yankees.
