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.

MLB notebook: Indians’ Lindor (calf) out two months

Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor will be sidelined seven to nine weeks after sustaining a right calf strain, the team announced Friday.

The Indians said Lindor recently hurt the calf while preparing for spring training in Orlando, Fla. An evaluation on Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic confirmed there was a moderate strain.

The timetable makes it likely Lindor, 25, will miss all of spring training and possibly the first two weeks of the regular season. Cleveland opens the regular season against the Minnesota Twins on March 28.

Rumors that the Cleveland GM was seen in the vicinity with an aluminum baseball bat are as of yet unproven.

Astros reliever Joe Smith out 6-8 months after rupturing Achilles tendon

The Astros could be missing a veteran bullpen piece for the first half of the 2019 season.

Reliever Joe Smith ruptured his Achilles tendon last week and is expected to miss six to eight months after undergoing surgery Tuesday, the team announced.

For those wanting another demonstration of the fungibility of relievers….

White Sox may shut down Eloy Jimenez following quad injury

White Sox’ no. 1 prospect Eloy Jimenez is likely to be removed from Dominican Winter League play following a recent quad injury, Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM reports. While the injury happened fairly close to the end of Jimenez’s scheduled playing time this offseason, it’s still of some concern for the club as the 22-year-old outfielder continues to move closer to his major league entrance in 2019.

On the plus side for the White Sox, this gives them a perfect excuse to play games with service time.

Tigers’ Francisco Liriano: Exits with injury

As someone who will always remember Francisco Liriano as The One That Got Away fifteen years ago, it’s a legitimate surprise (to me, at least) that he’s still in the majors.

Didi Gregorius possibly out for season with cartilage tear in wrist

Less than 24 hours after celebrating the clinching of a Wild Card spot, the Yankees suffered two losses. First, the team dropped the series finale to the Orioles in deflating fashion. The worse loss, however, came with Aaron Boone’s postgame conference. It’s here that he told reporters that Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius suffered a cartilage tear in his right wrist.

The injury occurred last night, as Gregorius scored on Aaron Hicks’ walk-off hit. Didi slid head first into home, scoring the winning run, but tearing the cartilage in his wrist in the process. According to Bryan Hoch, he underwent an MRI and received a cortisone shot. It is possible that this ends the season for the Yankees shortstop.

For those curious, for all the fuss at the start of the season, Gregorius ended up with 0.5 WAR and 0.5 WAA more than last year- slightly better at both getting walks and power, but static at everything else.
