New York – They love their records in the Bronx. This is one that the Bombers can handle.
The Yankees put third founder Joe Urschell on the 10-day early roster on Friday, which made him the record 29th New York player to land in IL this season.
The first founder, Luke Voit, is activated outside of IL in the corresponding movement. He was in the starting lineup for the leaders of the American League East, ranking sixth against the Oakland
New York surpassed the 2016 Dodgers, who had 28 players on the renamed disabled list.
"This was one of the storylines of our season," said manager Aaron Boone. Losing Boys And Getting The Boys Back.
Ursela was pulled in the fifth inning of a 7-3 win over Seattle on Wednesday after feeling tight in his groin. He said the muscle tightened early in the game and the MRI revealed tension.
Urshela said he believed he could return when eligible for the next game Sunday in Boston, and Boone agreed.
A star for breaking the Yankees this season, Ursela is hitting .331
Ursela entered the five five poster appearances, shy of qualifying for the title, and the missed time would probably cost him a shot. He follows teammate DJ LeMahieu (.335) and Michael Bruntley (.332) from Houston for the AL leader.
Ursela said that a wool crown does not matter to him.
"I just want to win games," he said.
Ursela is one of the club's best players since filling in for injured Miguel Andujar early in the season. He, LeMahieu, Mike Tauchman, Mike Ford, and others have shone in bigger roles, while most of New York's top stars have missed out for at least some time.
"We're probably a little too used to it," Boone said. "But something that everyone doesn't care about and knows we can go out and do our job." He played four rehab games with Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre and went 8-for-17 with two homers. The 28-year-old bee is hitting .278 with 19 homers and a .885 OPS this season.
Voit is still not sure if he will need surgery this season, but he said he no longer has problems running and feels ready to go. It may take more days off than normal down the stretch to ensure that the problem does not escalate.
