Dellin Betances injury: Yankees reliever (shoulder) will undergo another MRI

first_img“Didn’t go great,” he said, via the NY Times.Betances will now fly back to New York and undergo another MRI for his right shoulder impingement.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNDellin Betances’s sim game “didn’t go great,” per Aaron Boone. Betances (right shoulder impingement) was brought to NYC for another MRI.— James Wagner (@ByJamesWagner) April 12, 2019The Yankees have been absolutely pummeled by injuries so far this season as Betances wasn’t even the only New York player to go on the shelf on Friday.Gary Sanchez was put on the 10-day injured list with a calf strain as well, which means the Yankees have lost nearly half of their projected starting lineup since the start of the season.Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Hicks and Miguel Andujar are also inactive at the moment as they recover from injuries. Dellin Betances has not pitched yet for the Yankees this season and it appears he won’t be on the mound anytime soon.The Yankees reliever threw a simulated game on Friday and manager Aaron Boone was blunt with how it went. The starting rotation is missing two pieces as well as Luis Severino won’t be back for more than a month and CC Sabathia is still waiting to make his first start.New York is understandably struggling to start the year as a result and its record stands at 5-7 on the season.The Yankees were swept for the first time ever by the Astros during the week and come into a weekend matchup with the White Sox starting Friday.last_img read more
