I was thrilled when I read that the “C” team Yankees had miraculously swept the Giants for their 11th win in 13 games — until I saw the words: “second baseman DJ LeMahieu exited in the third due to right knee inflammation and third baseman Gio Urshela exited two innings later when he was hit by a pitch on his left hand.” Are you kidding me???? This injury thing has gotten ridiculous and it’s unprecedented. A team cannot lose every single player. Yes, we’ll have some guys coming back from the IL but who knows when and what do we do in the meantime? Both LeMahieu and Urshela have been terrific filling in for the “A” list guys, and now this? All I can hope for is that their injuries aren’t serious.
Meanwhile, Gary Sanchez continues to wield a hot bat, hitting another homer yesterday, in addition to the one by Torres (Leo, that was for you, since you yelled at him in your comment). Voit keeps slugging and Maybin has turned out to be a nice pickup.
Starting pitching wise, German wasn’t perfect but good enough to get the win. The kid clearly has talent.
After today’s off-day, the Yankees will continue their west coast swing in Arizona. Please let the surviving players stay healthy.
