The Yankees, on the other hand, came out on top 2-1 in a series against the Boston Red Sox and are currently tied in a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

New York Yankees Injury Report

The Yankees are lucky enough to have a very short injury list. Shorter still, is the list of players who normally make the lineup who are out of commission.

Here’s the short list:

Player Status Reason
Ben Rortvedt 10-Day IL Oblique
Zach Britton 60-Day IL Elbow

Catcher Ben Rortvedt, who came to the Yankees in a trade along with Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Josh Donaldson, is on the 10-day IL with an oblique injury, and pitcher Zach Britton is on the 60-day IL with elbow issues.

Interesting. Yankees say they’ve added Marwin Gonzalez to the 40-man (duh), but that Ben Rortvedt is only going on the 10-day (oblique) – IDK why I thought he might be a 60-day candidate. Last I spoke to him, the oblique still hurt when he swings. And they DFA’ed Jeisson Rosario
