Yankees reliever Zack Britton to undergo elbow surgery and likely will miss start of 2021 MLB season

New York Yankees reliever Zack Britton will likely miss the start of the 2021 MLB season because of an elbow issue. Britton, who underwent an MRI on Monday, first experienced the sensation after a weekend bullpen session. The Yankees announced Tuesday that Britton is expected to return to New York on Wednesday to have arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone chip from his left elbow.

The team has said there’s no known timetable for his return. With Opening Day just over three weeks away, it seems very likely he opens the season on the injured list.

Britton hadn’t yet made an appearance this spring, as he’s instead had to make up for time lost during the offseason. Britton endured a bout with COVID-19 in January that set him back.
