Sheffield (shoulder) was taken off the disabled list ahead of Wednesday's start against Triple-A Pawtucket, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader News reports. This move was expected, as Sheffield has returned to health after dealing with a minor shoulder issue. He'll take the hill Wednesday for his third Triple-A start of the 2018 season.
Sheffield (shoulder) will take the hill against Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader reports. Sheffield was placed on the minor-league DL this past weekend due to shoulder tightness. As expected, this minor issue won't sideline Sheffield for longer than one start as he's set to face Pawtucket for the second time this month. Over seven appearances this season, Sheffield has logged a 2.38 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.
Sheffield (shoulder) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Saturday, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports. Sheffield was removed from Friday's start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the middle of the third inning due to shoulder tightness. Though it's a positive sign that he didn't require any further testing following the game, this is still a situation to monitor moving forward, as is the case with any arm issue for a pitcher. Expect an update on his status in the coming days.
Sheffield exited Friday's game at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with shoulder tightness, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports. Sheffield left in the middle of the third inning, but the injury appears minor as the organization is opting not to send him for further testing. The 21-year-old should be considered day-to-day for now.
Sheffield was promoted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The 25-year-old continues to impress, as he produced a 2.25 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 28 innings for Double-A Trenton this season. Sheffield will now get his first taste of the Triple-A level, though at age 21, a callup to the big leagues this season still seems to be unlikely barring a rash of injuries. Yankees vice president of baseball operations Tim Naehring said his performance and development will dictate further promotion, however, so a stellar showing with the RailRiders could force the team's hand.
