Parmelee (hamstring) didn't return to the team before the All-Star break. Parmelee has been out exactly one month now since he was placed on the disabled list with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain. He was expected to miss at least a month, but has yet to play in any rehab games and will likely need more time before coming back to the Yankees. Before he went down with the injury, Parmelee was 4-for-8 with two home runs in his brief time with the Yankees.
Parmelee said he hasn't felt any pain in his injured hamstring in about a week, and is working out on a treadmill, Erik Boland of Newsday Sports reports. Although this is an encouraging sign for Parmelee's recovery, there is still no clear timetable for his return to baseball activities, let alone to the field. In his absence, Rob Refsnyder will continue to be the regular first baseman for the Yankees.
Parmelee will miss at least a month with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports. With Parmelee out, Rob Refsnyder will be the everyday first baseman going forward. Parmelee was placed on the 15-day DL earlier Friday and will likely be out until after the All-Star break. He was 4-for-8 with two home runs in his short time with the Yankees in 2016.
Parmelee was placed on the 15-day DL with a right hamstring strain. Parmelee went in for an MRI after Thursday's game, but manager Joe Girardi had already said he would be shocked if the injury didn't require a stint on the DL. This takes another name out of the Yankees' jumble at first base, with Rob Refsnyder and Austin Romine more likely to get starts barring a roster move.
Parmelee (hamstring) will go in for an MRI and manager Joe Girardi announced that he would be "shocked" if the first baseman didn't require a stint on the disabled list, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Parmelee was helped off the field by the team's training staff Thursday after suffering a right hamstring injury. His status moving forward won't become clear until the results of his MRI come back, but Girardi's comments suggest he could be heading to the DL. Rob Refsnyder, who is a converted middle infielder, has been working at first of late and could be a stopgap at that position until Mark Teixeira returns from the disabled list.
