Yankees have had the injury bug like never before but have been able to stay in the AL East race. If not for a few mental errors early on they'd probably be well over .500 instead of just trying to break even.
Tulowitski- Expected back April 19th
Tulo was serviceable when in the lineup but not great.
Bird- Expected out until Mid-May.
Was struggling severely before going down with injury.
Hicks- Out until early May at best.
Frankly I'd rather have Hicks in Center and Gardner play left and Frazier DH. Missing Hicks has been felt on defense more than anything.
Sanchez- Expect back April 21st.
He's a different Gary this year. He's out to prove something. Plus... Higashioka is our backup...yikes.
Betances- End of May probably early June at BEST.
Things are not looking good for Betances after pitching a simulated game and the bullpen is feeling his absence.
Severino- Maybe mid-July if at all. Recently got an MRI and he could miss the season.
He's our Ace, there's not much to say aside from that.
He's coming back but not for awhile. We miss everything about him defense, offense, and especially his attitude.
Andujar- Early May but we're still in the dark, could be done for the season.
Robbed of the RoY award last year. We don't miss is defense which was questionable at times but we miss his bat.
Stanton- Late April.
He's struggled so far in NY but when he's produced it's been in a big way.
