Not again: Yankees lose yet another player to injury as Gary Sánchez hits IL

The New York Yankees might want to consider taking the field wearing bubble wrap moving forward. The team was hit by yet another injury Friday, as catcher Gary Sánchez was placed on the injured list.

The 26-year-old Sánchez will miss at least the next 10 days due to a left calf strain. He was hitting .268/.333/.732 with six home runs to open the season.

The move leaves the Yankees with quite a few big names on the IL.

Yankees disastrous start gets even worse after Miguel Andujar tears labrum

The New York Yankees got off to an underwhelming start to the 2019 season, losing two of three games to the lowly Baltimore Orioles in their opening series. The team’s outlook didn’t improve much Monday, when both Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar were placed on the injured list with different ailments.

The 29-year-old Stanton will miss at least 10 days due to a biceps injury. Andujar could miss a lot more than 10 days.

The 24-year-old Andujar is dealing with a tear in his labrum. The team will treat him conservatively for two weeks but season-ending surgery could be on the table.

Never fear, there had to be someone Captain Intangibles will send their way in exchange for a hill of beans!

Francisco Lindor suffers setback with sprained ankle | MLB.com

This doesn’t help.

Francisco Lindor can’t catch a break this spring. Just when his return to the Tribe started to come into sight, it looks like he’ll likely have to be out even longer.

The Indians announced Wednesday afternoon that their All-Star shortstop sustained an acute left ankle sprain while running the bases during a Minor League game on Tuesday. He underwent an MRI later that night, which revealed the mild to moderate left ankle sprain. His timeframe for return is to be determined.

Nick Senzel Suffers Ankle Injury

In some ways Senzel is Nick Johnson’s little brother.  Both OBP-heavy top prospects with decent power.  Unfortunately the similarity extends outside of the batter’s box, as they both seem to be made of glass.  And not even some shatter-resistant safety glass either.

Orioles DH Trumbo to begin season on injured list

Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Mark Trumbo will open the season on the injured list, manager Brandon Hyde confirmed Sunday.

Trumbo, who led the majors with 47 home runs in 2016, has batted .167 in 13 plate appearances this spring as he recovers from offseason surgery on his right knee.

“We’re going to let him continue to do his rehab down here,” Hyde told reporters in Sarasota, Fla., according to MLB.com. “I give him so much credit for everything he’s done during his whole rehab process. Give him a ton of credit for trying to come back from a tough injury earlier than anybody has.”

Mark Got His Bat seems to be well-liked among a certain set, but I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone.

Injured duo Lindor, Kipnis to miss opening day for Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and double-play partner Jason Kipnis have been ruled out for opening day by the Cleveland Indians.

The team said Friday night that neither player will be ready for Thursday’s opener at Minnesota. Lindor will start the year on the 10-day injured list. He has been recovering from a right calf strain that’s limited him during spring training. He has yet to appear in a Cactus League game but has participated in intrasquad minor league games. Potentially frigid weather in Minneapolis is an extra concern for Cleveland.

Kipnis had an MRI on Thursday which confirmed a mild right calf strain. He won’t do any baseball activities for 7 to 10 days before being re-evaluated.

Vlad Jr. strains left oblique, out 3 weeks | Toronto Blue Jays

OK, he’s out for three weeks then they have him rehab in AAA. Does this help them finagle his service time?

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is expected to miss the next three weeks, after he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain of his left oblique muscle.
...
The 20-year-old third baseman technically was competing for a spot on the 25-man roster but all along the expectation was that Guerrero would start the year at Triple-A Buffalo. If the Blue Jays delayed his arrival in Toronto by a few weeks, the club would have gained an extra year of control, and this latest injury all but officially guarantees that will be the course of action.

Alex Dickerson agrees to minor league deal with Padres

LAS VEGAS- Outfielder Alex Dickerson, who hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2016 because of two major injuries that required surgery, has agreed to a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres.

The 28-year-old played in one spring training game in 2017, on March 11, and was diagnosed with a bulging disk in his back. He had surgery that June 28, returned for spring training this year and the Padres said March 20 that the left-hander needed Tommy John surgery.

Best wishes, but, if the descriptions in the full article are accurate, he seems to be as delicate as Waterford crystal…..
