The Yankees plan on using Loaisiga (shoulder) as a starter when he's activated from the injured list, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Loaisiga has been on the shelf since May 13 due to a right shoulder strain, but he did begin throwing again Tuesday. Skipper Aaron Boone noted that he still intends on stretching Loaisiga out as a starter, though the right-hander could also be used in a relief role, depending on what the team needs at that time. Loaisiga still has a long road ahead of him before receiving the green light, as he's not eligible to return from the injured list until after the All-Star break.
Loaisiga (shoulder) resumed throwing Tuesday, completing 50 tosses off flat ground at 60 feet, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Loaisiga was expected to be shut down for four weeks after landing on the injured list with a right rotator cuff strain May 13, and he did indeed stick to that timeline. He's been placed on the 60-day injured list, so he won't be eligible to return until after the All-Star break.
Loaisiga (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday. Loaisiga was scratched from Monday's start and subsequently placed on the 10-day IL with the right rotator cuff strain and will be out through at least mid-July. The 24-year-old will be shut down from throwing for the next four weeks, so the move to the 60-day IL shouldn't significantly impact his already lengthy return timeline.
Loaisiga will be shut down from throwing for four weeks with a right rotator cuff strain, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Loaisiga will still have to build his arm strength back up once he resumes throwing, so he won't be back in big-league action for quite some time. The 24-year-old has a 4.50 ERA and an unimpressive 13:8 K:BB in 14 innings of work for the Yankees this season. Chance Adams was called up to take his place on the roster.
Loaisiga was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a right shoulder strain. This explains why Loaisiga was scratched from his scheduled start Monday, with Luis Cessa getting the ball in his place. The move is retroactive to Friday, making the 24-year-old Loaisiga eligible to return next Monday, if he proves ready. With an off day Thursday, the Yankees won't need a fifth starter until May 21. Prior to suffering the injury, the right-hander compiled a 4.50 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 13:8 K:BB in four appearances (three starts, 14 innings) for New York. Chance Adams was summoned from the minors to take Loaisiga's spot on the roster.
