NEW YORK (AP) — The banged-up New York Yankees are finally starting to get some of their bats back.
Third baseman Miguel Andujar is set to come off the injured list Saturday, and the team hopes infielder DJ LeMahieu will return to the lineup that day as well. Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier is scheduled to follow on Monday, when center fielder Aaron Hicks could begin a minor league rehab assignment.
With 13 players still on the injured list, manager Aaron Boone gave a long rundown of medical status reports Friday before New York opened a homestand against the major league-leading Minnesota Twins.
The most encouraging news involved Andujar, sidelined since April 1 with a small labrum tear in his right shoulder. Initially, the fear was he might need surgery that would jeopardize the remainder of his season, but Andujar responded well to a rehab program and rejoined the Yankees on Friday.
