The Yankees Place Kendrys Morales on the IL

Well, the Kendrys Morales experiment continues to be interesting. Let’s go with interesting. The Yankees announced today that they put Morales on the 10-day IL, retroactive to 6/12. He has a left calf strain. They’ve called up Nestor Cortes Jr. and Mike Tauchman as corresponding roster moves.

Morales is hitting .194/.313/.253 (64 wRC+) on the year. The Yanks called up two players because they sent both Chance Adams (26th man for the doubleheader) and Stephen Tarpley back to AAA two days ago.

    I didn’t realize glaciers could get calf strains. He runs like he’s giving David Wells a piggyback to first base. I liked the signing at the time…it was a “what the hell” signing. That said: Stanton should be back next week (assuming he doesn’t get a hangnail or varicose veins or a strained lat in the next few days)

    LOL. At some point the Yankees will look at their conditioning/training staff to assess why this stuff keeps happening right?

    Our long national nightmare is (kind of) over.
