Is a lingering oblique injury contributing to Aaron Judge’s slump?

NEW YORK — Despite being mired in an awful slump, New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge says he’s fine physically.

“It doesn’t affect me at all,” Judge reiterated Thursday to Yahoo Sports of the oblique injury that cost him 54 games earlier this season.

Yet something is clearly wrong.

Because when No. 99 is on, he’s one of the best players in the world.

And right now, he’s off.

And yet he’s still a substantially better player than a certain Phillies outfielder…..

Tommy La Stella injury update: Angels All-Star has broken leg | Sporting News

Tommy La Stella will be sidelined for at least two months.

The Angels infielder underwent a CT scan Wednesday, which revealed a broken right leg. He will be out for 8-10 weeks, according to the team. La Stella fouled a ball off his right shin in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s 9-4 win against the Rangers and had to be helped off the field.

Astros shortstop Carlos Correa says broken rib was caused by in-home massage

News broke earlier Wednesday that Astros star shortstop Carlos Correa is due to miss four-to-six weeks with a broken rib. All we knew at the time was that Correa wasn’t with his team at the ballpark and that his manager didn’t say how the injury happened. That remains the case leading up to Wednesday’s game:

Correa, though, has issued a statement. And, well, hold onto your hats:

“I’m extremely disappointed about not being on the field with my teammates. I sustained the rib fracture during a massage at my home on Tuesday. To sustain an injury in such an unusual way makes it even more frustrating. However, I will work hard to get back on the field as quickly as possible to help our team achieve our goal of winning another championship.”

There’s further mention that Correa isn’t at the ballpark due to being instructed to limit his movement which, with a broken rib, makes sense.

Is that what we’re calling it?

Cano hurts quad running two days after sitting

NEW YORK—Criticized for not running hard, New York Mets second baseman Robinson Cano got hurt hustling up the first-base line.

The 36-year-old slugger left Wednesday night’s 6-1 win over the Washington Nationals after straining his left quadriceps.

Cano got hurt when he grounded out in the third inning following J.D. Davis’ two-out double. The Mets trailed 1-0 at the time.

“He took a few hard steps out of the box, got about halfway down the line and it grabbed on him,’’ manager Mickey Callaway said.

On second thought, maybe he had a good reason for not wanting to run….

Indians lose Corey Kluber to broken forearm | CBS Sports

During Wednesday night’s loss to the Marlins (MIA 4, CLE 2), Corey Kluber suffered a broken right forearm when he was hit by a comeback line drive. The ball came off Brian Anderson’s bat at 102 mph, according to Statcast.
...
The Indians are already without righty Mike Clevinger, who is down with a back injury and is expected to be out until June. Cleveland has used off days to skip their fifth starter when possible the last few weeks, with righty Jefry Rodriguez filling in when necessary. He’s likely to fill Kluber’s spot full-time now.

Yankees’ bad luck continues as new injury delays Giancarlo Stanton’s return

For every piece of good news the New York Yankees have received on the injury front this season, it seems they’ve been hit with at least two tough breaks in response.

That was the case again on Wednesday. Shortly after catcher Gary Sanchez was activated from the injured list, manager Aaron Boone revealed that Giancarlo Stanton’s return will be delayed by a new injury.

The Yankees designated hitter has fully healed from the biceps strain that sent him to the injured list on April 1. While that’s encouraging, the bad news is that Stanton’s left shoulder is now sore. The new ailment required a cortisone shot, which guarantees he won’t return on the team’s current road trip.

To make matters worse, there’s a clump of dirt waiting outside Stanton’s house- it claims to be from Pittsburgh….

The Bronx Is Hurting

The Yankees stand out for two reasons. The first is that most of the teams with 13 or more players on the IL at once reached their injury peak near midseason, which makes sense—players’ bodies wear down as the season goes on. The Yankees are one of just two teams since 2002 to put 13 players on the IL in April.

The second reason is the quality of players they have on the shelf at once. Like Judge, their list of IL’d players is not only large, but quite productive. If the Yankees could put together the best 10-player lineup (eight position players, DH, starting pitcher), eight of those players, plus another member of their rotation (Montgomery) and their setup man (Betances), are currently on the IL.

Reds’ Scooter Gennett injures leg, sent for scan

PHOENIX (AP) — Cincinnati Reds All-Star second baseman Scooter Gennett injured his right leg while fielding a grounder against Milwaukee and was helped off the field.

Gennett ranged to his left for a ball off the bat of Yasmani Grandal leading off the second inning Friday. Gennett slid to make the stop and threw to pitcher Robert Stephenson covering first for the out. Gennett went to his knees and was helped off by Reds head athletic trainer Steve Baumann and manager David Bell.

“I don’t know exactly if it was when he fell or when he made the throw,” Bell said. “He felt something in his groin.

So, will this affect his ability to scoot?

Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks to miss opening day with back injury

CLEARWATER, Fla. — New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks had a second cortisone shot for his ailing back and will not be ready for opening day.

Hicks was hurt while taking batting practice March 1.

New York manager Aaron Boone didn’t rule out Hicks returning during the second week of the season.

Depending, of course, on what’s actually in those shots….

`Royals coming to grips with possibility that Salvador Perez might miss entire season

Royals All-Star catcher and five-time Gold Glove winner Salvador Perez remains hopeful that he’ll be able to play this season, but he also knows that he has to be prepared for the possibility of missing the entire 2019 campaign.

Perez spoke with reporters at the team facility in Arizona on Saturday, one day after the team announced that an MRI revealed damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing arm.
