Florial (wrist) underwent an MRI and visited a hand specialist Monday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Florial was diagnosed with a non-displaced right wrist fracture after crashing into the outfield wall over the weekend. Monday's MRI revealed a small second fracture, however the issue is reportedly inconsequential and isn't expected to affect his recovery time. It's still unclear exactly how long the youngster will be sidelined, but the fact that he won't need surgery bodes well for his chances of avoiding an extended absence. He's expected to wear a hard cast for a few weeks before being reevaluated. Once healthy, Florial figures to report to either High-A Tampa or Double-A Trenton.
Florial said that he won't require surgery to address the non-displaced fracture of his right wrist he suffered Saturday, George A. King III and Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports. Florial relayed that he'll still require an MRI on Monday as the Yankees look to determine how long he'll be sidelined, but the fact that surgery is off the table bodes well for his chances of avoiding a lengthy absence. The 21-year-old required surgery for the same wrist last season and was limited to just 84 games at the minor-league level. He'll likely continue to rehab at the Yankees' spring-training facility in Florida while he opens the upcoming campaign on the injured list for either High-A Tampa or Double-A Trenton.

Florial received an invitation to the Yankees' major-league spring training on Friday. Florial has yet to play above High-A, so his odds of reaching the majors this season are slim. Still, he'll get an opportunity to work with the team's big-league coaching staff as he prepares to climb the ladder ahead of a potential debut sometime in 2020. The 21-year-old outfielder possesses good speed but hit just .255 with three homers in 75 games for High-A Tampa last season.
