New York Daily News | Mike Mazzeo: Dustin Fowler was carted off the field in the first inning after crashing into the wall in right field trying to make a play. His knee hit the wall awkwardly and afterwards he could not put any weight on his leg. It was the first ball hit his way and before he was even able to have his first at-bat.
Dustin Fowler has an open rupture of right patella tendon in right knee. Will have surgery tonight at Rush U Med Center in Chicago.— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) June 30, 2017
Just terrible news for Fowler. It looks like he’ll be out at least the rest of this season, but he could be ready for spring training. I’m sure more details will come out on this today. Here’s to a fast and successful recovery!
MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: The Yankees love roster moves. Prior to yesterday’s game the Yankees called up Chris Carter and Fowler. To make room on the 40-man, they designated Mason Williams for assignment and shifted Greg Bird to the 60-day disabled list. To make room on the active roster, they sent Miguel Andujar down to Triple-A and placed Tyler Austin on the 10-day disabled list. More moves are coming today following the news of Fowler’s injury.
FanRag Sports | Jon Heyman: First things first: laugh. HAHAHAHAHA. Got it out of your system? No? Laugh again. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Better. So the San Diego Padres are looking for their shortstop of the future, and have called the Yankees to ask about Gleyber Torres. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Moving on, the Padres do have pieces the Yankees could be interested in like Brad Hand and Yangervis Solarte, but not for Torres. Once more because we need the laughter: The Padres asked about Gleyber Torres. HAHAHAHAHA.
NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: The Yankees are sending two prospect to MLB’s annual All-Star Futures Game. Right-hander Domingo Acevdeo and outfielder Estevan Florial will participate for Team World in this year’s game. The game will take place on July 9th, before the MLB All-Star game. The Yankees’ system keeps producing exciting prospects and youngsters. We’re seeing a lot of them at the major league level right now, but there’s still more to come.
