3B - NYY
Gio Urshela agreed to a one-year, $4.65 million deal with the Yankees to avoid arbitration.
Urshela gets a salary bump as a reward for his soldi 2020 season when he slashed .298/.368/.490 with six homers and 30 RBI over 151 at-bats. He's been a very underrated player over the last few years.
Gio Urshela underwent successful surgery on Friday to remove a bone chip from his right elbow, according to the Yankees PR Department.
The surgery went according to plan and Urshela's recovery time is expected to be three months so he's not in danger of missing the start of the 2021 season. This is the same elbow that bothered him in September and sent him to the 10-day IL. He also missed time last year with a groin injury. Urshela still had a solid year for the Yanks, slashing .298/.368/.490 with six home runs and 30 RBI across 151 at-bats during the regular season.
Gio Urshela crushed a grand slam off James Karinchak in Game 2 of the Wild Card Round as the Yankees swept the Indians to advance to the ALDS.
Urshela had a phenomenal game against his former team as he also turned a crucial double play in the eighth inning. The 28-year-old was a late bloomer but he has seized the Yankees' everyday third base job with his performance over the past two seasons. New York will play the Tampa Bay Rays in a best-of-five ALDS next.
Gio Urshela went 4-for-5 with a double, a run scored, and two RBI during Tuesday's 12-1 win over the Blue Jays.
Urshela now has a .308/.377/.519 slash line with six homers, 23 runs, and 29 RBI through 38 games in 2020. The 28-year-old infielder is a must-own in all 12 team fantasy leagues and deeper.
Gio Urshela went 1-for-3 at the plate driving in two runs with a couple of sacrifice flys on Saturday as the Yankees beat the Red Sox by an 8-0 score.
Urshela is hitting .333 since returning from the IL on Tuesday. Overall the 28-year-old third baseman is batting .282 with a .359 on-base percentage, six home runs, 25 RBI, and 21 runs scored on the season.
