Multiple Yankees Injured During Same Game [Video]



Knowledge Nuggets:

  • In a 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Guardians, the Yankees suffered the loss of center fielder Harrison Bader and rising prospect Oswald Peraza due to injuries.
  • Bader collided with Isiah Kiner-Falefa while chasing a ball in short left-center, resulting in a potential head or neck injury.
  • Peraza, who replaced Anthony Rizzo as a pinch-runner, rolled his ankle but continued his momentum, and the severity of his injury is yet to be determined.

The New York Yankees celebrated a hard-fought victory over the Guardians on Wednesday, but the win came at a cost. Both their starting center fielder, Harrison Bader, and promising prospect Oswald Peraza left the game due to injuries.

Bader, who had just returned to the lineup after missing the first month of the season with a hamstring strain, collided with Isiah Kiner-Falefa in the top of the ninth inning.

The ball hit into the short left-center field, and both players sprinted towards it with unwavering determination. Unfortunately, their efforts ended in a collision, with Bader’s head making contact with Kiner-Falefa’s side.

The extent of Bader’s injury is not yet clear, but Manager Aaron Boone expressed optimism, stating that Bader seemed to be in good spirits.

In the same inning, Peraza, who replaced Anthony Rizzo as a pinch-runner, suffered a rolled ankle while attempting to steal second base.

Despite the injury, Peraza valiantly limped his way towards the base and was ultimately safe when the ball eluded the grasp of second baseman Andres Gimenez. The severity of Peraza’s injury is still under evaluation, and further tests will determine the course of action.

The Yankees have had their fair share of injury woes this season, with a constantly growing list of players on the injured list. Prior to Wednesday’s game, they had 12 players sidelined, and Bader’s recent return was a ray of hope.

However, the latest injuries to Bader and Peraza have cast a shadow of uncertainty over the team’s immediate future. Manager Boone acknowledged the possibility of adding more players to the injured list, considering the team’s current predicament.
