Aaron Boone said Tuesday that it looks like DJ LeMahieu will be able to avoid surgery on his toe.
“We're really encouraged about where he's at," Boone said. "He's been at the player development complex pretty much every day.” Boone said he’s been running, hitting and fielding. It sounds like LeMahieu is well on track to being fully healthy for spring training.
DJ LeMahieu is not on the ALDS roster due to a foot fracture. He has not been ruled out of a potential ALCS roster.
LeMahieu's foot fracture is said to resonate to his toes, making it difficult to pivot. He is trying multiple remedies to get back onto the field, but it doesn't look likely that he will be ready to go soon. Still, he has not been ruled out if the Yankees advance.
DJ LeMahieu was officially activated from the injured list on Friday.
LeMahieu has missed nearly a month with a toe injury. He is back and will start Friday's game against the Orioles. LeMahieu is not quite back to 100 percent health, but he is good enough to contribute to the Yankees down the stretch and in the postseason.
DJ LeMahieu will be placed on the 10-day IL with a sprained toe.
LeMahieu hasn't played since 9/4 dealing with this injury, and will need extended time off to get right. The Yankees weren't originally planning on an IL trip for their veteran infielder, but after missing both games of the doubleheader Wednesday, they began discussing the possibility. It's unclear how long he will be out, but he should still be held on to for now as he could be back after the minimum of 10 days.
DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with an RBI in New York’s 4-2 win against Toronto on Sunday.
LeMahieu batted cleanup on Sunday and was responsible for the first two Yankee runs. LeMahieu is 6-for-19 (.316) with two multi-hit games since returning from a four-game absence due to soreness/inflammation in his right big toe on August 17. LeMahieu is slashing .280/.378/.412 with 12 home runs, 44 RBI, 71 runs scored, and four stolen bases in 410 at-bats this season.
