Yankees' Gio Urshela: Starting at third base

He'll move back to third base, the position he occupied for the bulk of the season, with Andrew Velazquez starting at shortstop.... See More ... See Less

He said after the game that he expected to be ready to go Tuesday, and that now appears to be all but confirmed. Boone said Urshela was still sore but is in a good enough place that he'd probably be in the lineup even if the game occurred Monday rather than Tuesday.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Off Monday, move to SS awaits
Urshela is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins, but manager Aaron Boone said he expects the 29-year-old to serve as the Yankees' primary shortstop for the remainder of the season, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
After recently shaking off a hand injury and proceeding to go 2-for-14 in four straight starts upon rejoining the lineup, Urshela is just getting some maintenance Monday in a day game after a night game. His absence from the starting nine is probably of lesser significance than the fact that he's poised to shift over from third base to shortstop, as the Yankees look for a defensive upgrade in light of Gleyber Torres' struggles in the field of late. Torres will move down a spot in the defensive spectrum to second base, while the primary option at the keystone, DJ LeMahieu, kicks over to Urshela's old post at third base. After Monday, the Yankees will have 18 games remaining on their regular-season schedule, and since he's already made eight starts at shortstop in 2021, Urshela should have a decent chance at carrying eligibility at the position in 2022 in certain leagues if he plays nearly every day the rest of the way....

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Idle Wednesday
Urshela is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.
After missing four games with a hand injury, Urshela was cleared to start the first two of the Yankees' four games versus Toronto to begin the week. He'll take a seat Wednesday after going 1-for-7 between the first two contests, allowing Rougned Odor to pick up a start at the hot corner. Urshela will likely return to the lineup for Thursday's series finale.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Shakes off hand injury
Urshela (hand) will start at third base and bat ninth Monday against the Blue Jays.
He'll check back into the starting nine for the first time since last Tuesday after a sore left hand kept him out of the lineup for each of the previous four games. Urshela was able to make a cameo off the bench in Sunday's 8-7 loss to Baltimore as a pinch hitter, which was apparently enough to convince the Yankees that he was ready to return to an everyday role in the field. With Urshela back in the fold, Rougned Odor is expected to move back into a utility role.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Not starting Sunday
