Yamamoto (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday. The 25-year-old landed on the 10-day IL earlier Tuesday with right shoulder soreness, and it didn't take long for him to shift to the 60-day IL. Yamamoto will be sidelined until at least late July. The Mets acquired outfielder Billy McKinney from the Brewers in a corresponding move.
Yamamoto was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder soreness, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. It was reported Monday that Yamamoto was expected to land on the injured list after leaving his start early on Sunday with the shoulder discomfort. With Jacob deGrom being activated ahead of his Tuesday start, Yamamoto has officially been added to the Mets' lengthy injured list. It's unclear when Yamamoto will return, not to mention whether he will do so as a reliever or starter.
Yamamoto's sore shoulder is expected to send him to the injured list, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. Yamamoto was pulled from his start Sunday against the Marlins due to the injury after allowing five runs in four innings of work. He'll likely hit the injured list to make way for Jacob deGrom (side), who's expected to be activated to start Tuesday against the Rockies.
Yamamoto was removed from Sunday's start against the Marlins with right shoulder soreness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The right-hander was pulled due to the shoulder issue after surrendering five runs (four earned) on six hits across four innings. It was likely only a spot start for Yamamoto with Jacob deGrom (side) set to return from this injured list this week, but the 25-year-old could now be headed to the injured list rather than back to the minors.
Yamamoto will start Sunday's game against the Marlins, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. The 25-year-old has lined up to start one of the weekend games in Miami this weekend since joining the team at the start of the series, and he's now been confirmed as the pitcher for Sunday's contest. Yamamoto made one appearance this season in early May and allowed one run on four hits with one strikeout and zero walks over 2.2 innings.
