Latest MLB News Rumors Gio Urshela injured Kyle

Gerrit Cole’s COVID-19 positive isn’t the only thing the New York Yankees in the last days of the MLB.

Colombian third baseman Gio Urshela he has a hamstring strain that will keep him out for a week.

“It will continue to improve in the next few days and hopefully it will only be a week or eight days or so,” manager Aaron Boone told nj.com of Urshela’s injury.

His absence will lead to Yankees to rotate Rougned Odor, DJ LeMahieu and Tyler Wade at third base. LeMahieu has been dealing with a minor right tricep injury, so Odor will likely spend more time on third base.
