Prior to Game 1 of tonight’s doubleheader, the Yankees placed INF Gio Urshela on the 10-day IL with a right elbow bone spur & placed RHP Jonathan Loaisiga on the 10-day IL (retro to 9/2) with a medical condition that prevents him from playing and necessitates placement on the IL— Yankees PR Dept.

Good grief, the hits just keep on coming. We knew about Gio Urshela’s bone spur before, but I guess it’s become troublesome enough that he needs some time on the shelf. As for Jonathan Loaisiga: this came out of the blue and sounds scary. Hoping for the best for him.
In their place, the Yankees brought up Miguel Andújar and Miguel Yajure. Andújar figures to be the everyday third baseman for the time being while Yajure is depth.
This season just really stinks overall. It’s hard for the Yankees to contend with basically everyone who was supposed to be a regular on the injured list. It’s been said ad nauseam, but if it weren’t for the expanded postseason, I’d write the Yankees off at this point. Have to hope for better health in the coming weeks and that they get hot at the right time.
