3B,SS - NYY
Gio Urshela went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's win against the Orioles by a 4-3 score.
Urshela homered for the first time since July 4th as the 29-year-old infielder has been struggling at the plate and with injuries. Over the last 16 games, Urshela is hitting .159 with 18 strikeouts in 51 at-bats and is no longer a must roster in standard fantasy leagues.
Gio Urshela remained out of the Yankees' lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles in which the team lost by a 4-3 score.
Urshela still has not made an appearance on the field in the month of September after hurting his hand Tuesday. The 29-year-old infielder is likely to avoid the injured list and remains day-to-day for now. It's unclear whether he'll be ready to return for Sunday's game and fantasy managers should keep an eye on updates.
New York Yankees third baseman Gio Urshela (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list on Thursday.
Urshela missed about three weeks with a left hamstring strain. He’s been limited by injuries since the beginning of July and has only appeared in 16 games. Pitcher Brody Koerner was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/ Wilkes Barre in a corresponding move. Urshela has had modest success this season, slashing .274/.315/.439 with 11 home runs, 41 RBI, 32 runs scored, and one stolen base over 330 plate appearances in 2021.
Gio Urshela ran at 80 percent effort on Monday, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone.
Urshela suffered a setback while running earlier this month, so it does appear he is now headed in the right direction. He'll ramp up in baseball activity now over the next few days. He could play in a rehab game or two later this week, Boone said.
Gio Urshela had a setback on Sunday during his running and ground ball work. He is not expected to re-join the Yankees this week.
Urshela is slashing .274/.315/.439 with 11 homers this season. Hopefully he doesn't have anymore setbacks and can return within the next two weeks.
