Ackley (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Saturday. Ackley will miss the rest of the 2016 season and may have played his last game wearing pinstripes. He successfully underwent surgery Friday morning to repair his torn labrum in his right shoulder, which went well according to manager Joe Girardi. Ackley had battled a couple minor injuries in addition to the labrum during the 2016 season and will have the rest of the year to recover.
Ackley (shoulder) will have season-ending surgery on his torn labrum, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports. This is yet another major blow to the Yankees' first base depth as Ackley was serving as Mark Teixeira's backup, and Teixera himself has not had a clean bill of health this season. Ackley's injury further magnifies the loss of Greg Bird, who was lost for the season with a torn labrum in February. The Yankees could plug Ronnie Torreyes in at first on occasion with Ackley done for the season, or they could give Brian McCann some starts there as well.
Ackley has been diagnosed with a torn labrum according to manager Joe Girardi, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports. Ackley now faces the possibility of surgery after what was initially called a dislocated surgery. Considering that Ackley throws with his right hand, surgery to repair a torn labrum could very well end up costing him the 2016 season. It's yet another tough loss for the Yankees, who just recently managed to climb out of the cellar in the AL East. Look for an official announcement from the team if surgery is ultimately determined to be the best option.
Ackley was placed on the 15-day DL Monday due to a dislocated right shoulder. Ackley felt his shoulder "pop" in Sunday's loss to the Rays, and an MRI later revealed that is was dislocated. He'll land on the disabled list as a result, and the Yankees will call up infielder Rob Refsnyder to take his spot on the roster.
Ackley suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Rays and will undergo an MRI, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Ackley said he felt his shoulder pop out when he dove back into first base while attempting to retrieve a pickoff throw, which resulted in the Yankees bringing the ailing Mark Teixeira (neck) into the game late as a defensive replacement. Manager Joe Girardi told the media that it's a "distinct possibility" that Ackley will have to head to the DL, but the Yankees won't make a decision on that front until the results of the MRI are read.
