7:14pm ET: X-rays on Urshela’s hand came back negative, the Yankees announced. That’s great news. That said, I’m sure Urshela’s hand is swollen and sore. He might need a few days before returning to the lineup. Hopefully he can avoid the injured list. Here’s the video:
The Yankees have either 12 or 13 players on the injured list. I forgot exactly how many at this point. Urshela is filling in at third base for Miguel Andujar and he’s been great, including reaching base three times Sunday. Add in the defense and you couldn’t have asked him for much more.
Thairo Estrada is already on the big league roster and the Yankees have Brad Miller in Triple-A as an obvious call-up candidate. If they need to replace LeMahieu or Urshela, they go do it easily. If they have to replace both? Goodness, I have no idea. Stay tuned for an update on Urshela.
