Yankees could be without Gary Sanchez for a month due to aggravated groin injury
Sanchez won't be back until late August at the earliest
Sanchez was revealed to have aggravated an old groin injury and wason Tuesday. A day later, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman announced that they don't expect Sanchez to return for at least a month:
That's a rough break for the Yankees, who will now have to lean on Austin Romine behind the plate as they try to get back into the American League East race. It's also a rotten turn for Sanchez, who hit the DL with a .188/.283/.416 line.
If there is good news here, it's that the Yankees are all but certain to make the postseason. In that sense, the most important bit here is for Sanchez to make sure he's hearty and hale before October. The Yankees could use a productive Sanchez if they're to make a run at the pennant.
