Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Britton (elbow) is scheduled to throw in a simulated game next week, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Britton resumed mound work last week, and he's slated to take another step in his recovery next week. The left-hander will likely begin a rehab assignment following his simulated game, but he isn't eligible to return to the major-league bullpen until the end of May.
Britton (elbow) threw off a mound Friday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
Britton underwent elbow surgery in March, and his return to major-league game action isn't imminent. However, his progression to mound work represents a significant step in his recovery process. If all goes well following his return to mound work, Britton could return to the big-league bullpen near the end of May.
Britton (elbow) will throw off a mound when the Yankees return from their current road trip, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports.
Though he remains far from a return to pitching in big-league games, Britton's progression to mound work will be a significant step in his recovery from March surgery. The Yankees next play at home Friday against Detroit, and the southpaw is expected to get back on a mound around that time. He appears on track to rejoin the team's bullpen near the end of May.
Britton (elbow) has started a throwing program and is still expected to return in late May, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.
Britton underwent surgery in mid-March to remove bone chips from his left elbow. According to manager Aaron Boone, the reliever started his throwing program last week at Yankee Stadium and is doing well. "I think the biggest thing with that operation that he had was getting the swelling out of there, making sure the incision was healing properly, getting his range of motion back, which he has," Boone said Sunday. "Now it's starting to ramp up."
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Britton (elbow) is on track to resume playing catch off flat ground this week, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
Boone noted that Britton is coming along more quickly than expected in his recovery after he underwent surgery in mid-March to remove a bone chip and loose bodies from his left elbow. The southpaw has already regained full range of motion in his elbow, enabling him to begin his throwing program. The Yankees are seemingly optimistic that Britton will be ready to come off the 60-day injured list once he's eligible to return in late May.
Britton (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to March 29.
The 33-year-old underwent surgery in mid-March to remove a bone chip and loose bodies from his left elbow, so it was a foregone conclusion he'd begin the season on the injured list. Britton recently said he's targeting a return in late May, which is when he will first be eligible to be activated from the injured list.
Britton (elbow) could return in late May or June, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Britton underwent surgery to remove a bone chip in his left elbow in mid-March. He hasn't yet been placed on the 60-day injured list, but that transaction is presumably coming soon. That would rule him out until at least the final few days of May.
Britton underwent surgery Monday to remove a bone chip and loose bodies from his left elbow, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Britton is expected to miss at least the first three months of the season while recovering from the procedure, so he won't be available to make his 2021 debut until shortly before the All-Star break, if not later. Expect the Yankees to place Britton on the 60-day injured list within the next week or two in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
Britton (elbow) is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday in New York, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.
According to Murti, the surgery will be performed by Yankees team doctor Chris Ahmad, who notes on his personal website that pitchers undergoing procedures similar to Britton's typically need 3-to-4 months of recovery before returning to full competition. Once he has the bone chip removed from his elbow, Britton could be cleared to begin a throwing program by early May, but he'll likely need an additional six weeks beyond that to get his arm reconditioned for game action. With that timeline in mind, the Yankees likely won't count on Britton being an option out of the bullpen until shortly before the All-Star break.
Britton requires orthoscopic surgery to remove a bone chip in his left elbow and will undergo the procedure in New York within the next few days.
The news comes after Britton had an MRI on Tuesday after developing elbow soreness during a recent bullpen session. While Britton at least won't require Tommy John surgery, this isn't exactly the news the Yankees wanted to hear. The team has yet to provide a clear timetable for his return, but he'll presumably miss a fair portion of the season. Per Jeff Passan of ESPN.com, it usually takes at least a month for a pitcher to recover from the procedure, but Britton will then have to ramp back up before getting into game action.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Britton underwent an MRI after developing elbow soreness during a recent bullpen session, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Boone said that he doesn't believe that Britton is dealing with any damage to his UCL, but the fact that the southpaw was sent in for an MRI is somewhat worrisome even if the tests were merely precautionary. The Yankees likely won't have an update on Britton until the results of his MRI are read, but don't expect him to appear in any Grapefruit League games this week.
The Yankees exercised Britton's $14 million club option for 2022 on Thursday, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.
The left-hander had the option to opt out of the remainder of his contract ahead of the 2021 season, but he declined to do so. The Yankees ultimately decided to commit to Britton through 2022, leaving them set to pay him a total of $27 million over the next two seasons. The southpaw, who logged a 1.91 ERA and 1.00 WHIP across 19.1 innings pitched in 2020, figures to remain a key component of the Yankees bullpen moving forward.
Britton earned the hold with a perfect inning against Tampa Bay on Tuesday. He struck out one.
Britton was activated from the injured list earlier in the day and was immediately put to the test in the eighth inning. He had no problem setting the Rays down in order, throwing eight of 12 pitches for strikes while lowering his season ERA to 1.80. As expected, Britton slotted back into a setup role upon his return after functioning as the closer in Aroldis Chapman's absence throughout the first half of the season.
Britton (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Britton saved eight games while posting a 2.00 ERA in nine innings early in the season before suffering a hamstring strain. Now that Aroldis Chapman is healthy, Britton will fill a setup role going forward.
Britton is expected to return from his hamstring strain within the next few days, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.
Britton has already spent the minimum 10 days on the injured list, and it doesn't sound as though he'll need to be shelved for much longer, as his recent bullpen sessions evidently went well. He'll fill a setup role for the Yankees upon his return but would likely be the top option to return to a ninth-inning role should Aroldis Chapman suffer an injury.
Britton (hamstring) tossed a bullpen Friday and is set to throw another Sunday before the team makes any final decisions about activating him, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Britton was also reported to have run sprints Thursday, so it appears as though he's making daily progress. There has not been an official timeline as to when Britton is expected to return, but the indication is that one may be given as soon he completes his second bullpen session Sunday.
Britton (hamstring) ran sprints Thursday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The 32-year-old remains without a timeline for his return from the left hamstring strain, but it's good news to see him working through a running program. Britton's eventual return to mound work will be a solid indication of when he may be able to rejoin the club.
The Yankees placed Britton (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
The Yankees are still waiting on the results of Britton's MRI before providing a timeline for his return, but the hamstring strain the lefty sustained in his appearance in Wednesday's loss to the Rays was deemed significant enough to cost him at least a week and a half of action. After going 8-for-8 in save opportunities to begin the season, Britton's fantasy stock was set to take a hit when Aroldis Chapman was activated from the COVID-19 injured list earlier this week. Britton's subsequent move to the IL now clears the way for Chapman to reclaim the closer's gig outright.
Manager Aaron Boone said that Britton will undergo an MRI on Thursday after the reliever suffered a left hamstring injury in his appearance during Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Britton entered a 2-2 contest Wednesday with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. After getting the Yankees out of the seventh unscathed, Britton came back out for the eighth and gave up two runs (one earned) to get tagged with his second loss. He tweaked his hamstring at some point during the appearance, and the fact that an MRI has been ordered up suggests a move to the injured list could be a real possibility for Britton.
Britton (0-2) has a potential leg injury after taking the loss Wednesday against the Rays as he allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits with one walk and one strikeout while recording two outs, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The veteran southpaw delivered only 13 of his 26 pitches for strikes and was grabbing at his leg before exiting the contest. Manager Aaron Boone didn't offer any specifics on the issue, saying that the team is "looking at" Britton's leg. The 32-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the Yankees update his status.
