Yankees' Gio Urshela: Knocks in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

Urshela kicked off the scoring in this one with a single to left field, knocking in a pair of runs. The 27-year-old continues to see the ball well at the dish, and he's now slashing .302/.352/.461 with seven homers and 41 RBI over 74 contests.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Rejoins lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (leg) is starting at third base and batting sixth Friday at Tampa Bay.

Urshela had a MRI come back clean after experiencing glute cramps earlier in the week, and he's all set to go Friday. The 27-year-old is having a breakout campaign with a .307/.360/.472 slash line, 14 doubles and seven homers in 69 games.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Undergoes MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An MRI on Urshela's left glute came back clean, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

This is obviously good news, but Urshela's availability for this weekend is up in the air. Long considered a light-hitting, glove-first third baseman, Urshela has surprised with an .829 OPS through 68 games. He should continue to start against left-handers and occasionally against righties.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Crushes seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Mets.

Urshela appeared to sustain an injury as he slowly rounded the bases on his sixth-inning homer, but he was just dealing with a cramp and never exited the contest, per Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports. Urshela has taken advantage of the numerous injuries to the Yankees' lineup this season and is slashing .307/.357/.472 in 68 games.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Crosses home twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI and a pair of runs Sunday in the Yankees' 10-3 win over the White Sox.

With Didi Gregorius getting the day off, Urshela checked into the lineup at third base while Gleyber Torres shifted over to shortstop. Gregorius should be subjected to fewer off days as he regains conditioning following his long layoff from Tommy John surgery, which could relegate Urshela to the bench more frequently. Urshela has already noticed a downturn in playing time lately, as he sat out two of the four games in Chicago.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Drives in four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI as the Yankees won the first game of a doubleheader against the Mets on Tuesday.

Urshela tied the game with his fifth homer, a two-run blast in the third inning, and also drove in runs on a single in the fifth and a double in the seventh. The 27-year-old has been outstanding this season, contributing a .320/.374/.479 slash line over 169 at-bats.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

Didi Gregorius' return from Tommy John surgery has crowded the Yankees' infield, and Urshela will be the odd man out on this occasion. Gregorius will need frequent off days during his first few weeks back in action, and the Yankees will likely rotate players through the designated hitter spot, but Urshela will probably be the infielder who loses out most often. DJ Lemahieu starts at third base Monday.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Maintaining everyday role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday against the Indians, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

The Yankees' infield became more crowded earlier this weekend when Didi Gregorius was reinstated from the 60-day injured list, but his arrival won't necessarily push Urshela out of the lineup. Urshela will draw his 10th consecutive start Sunday and may be less impacted by the addition of Gregorius than Kendrys Morales, whose designated-hitter spot may be regularly rotated between Gregorius, Gleyber Torres, DJ LeMahieu and Urshela.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela will sit Tuesday against the Padres, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

After a surprisingly hot start to his Yankees' career, Urshela has fallen off a bit lately, hitting .286/.328/.321 in his last 16 games. DJ LeMahieu gets the start at third base, with Thairo Estrada starting at second.

May 23, 2019 03:24 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.

Urshela hasn't cooled down after his hot start, hitting .340/.367/.468 over his last 14 games. DJ LeMahieu slides over to third base in his absence, with Thairo Estrada starting at second.

May 20, 2019 04:16 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (knee) is in the lineup Monday against the Orioles.

Urshela left Sunday's game against the Rays after fouling a ball off his knee, but the removal was considered precautionary, so it's not a big surprise to see him back in the lineup just one day later. Urshela will bat seventh and play third base in Monday's contest.

May 20, 2019 12:40 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Removal was precautionary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said removing Urshela early from Sunday's action was "cautious" and the third baseman's groin injury doesn't appear to be major, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

Urshela was removed after fouling a ball off himself in the third inning. Boone also noted that Urshela had a tough time running, but that the team thought he would be okay. It remains unclear if Urshela will miss additional time, but his next chance to be in the lineup will come on Monday as the Yankees travel to Baltimore.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Lifted with suspected knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela was pulled from Sunday's game against the Rays prior to his sixth-inning plate appearance due to a suspected knee injury, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

During a plate appearance in the bottom of the third, Urshela appeared to be in pain after fouling a ball off his knee, but remained in the contest. The Yankees' decision to lift Urshela from the game a few innings later suggests that his knee may have swelled up, though the team should provide an official diagnosis for the third baseman later Sunday. Thairo Estrada stepped in for Urshela and promptly delivered a bases-clearing double to break the game open for the Yankees.

May 17, 2019 11:36 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Comes up with walkoff hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's win over the Rays.

The Yankees entered the bottom of the ninth inning down by a run, but Luke Voit homered to tie the contest and Urshela was able to win it on an RBI single to center. The 27-year-old has been impressive at the dish this season in the Bronx, slashing .347/.398/.500 with 16 RBI over 34 games.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Urshela will sit for Game 2 after going hitless in three at-bats during the first half of Wednesday's twin bill. DJ LeMahieu is starting at third base and leading off in his stead.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Delivers big hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rays.

Urshela drove home a pair of runs in the sixth on a single to left field, which ended up being the deciding factor in the ballgame. The 27-year-old third baseman has been red hot through 30 games this season, slashing .349/.409/.518 with 10 home runs and 13 RBI.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Pinch hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela made a pinch-hit appearance in the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Mariners on Thursday, delivering a two-run single.

Urshela was held out of the starting lineup after exiting with a knee contusion Wednesday, but he came through when needed. He's expected to be able to start Friday, per ESPN.com's Coley Harvey. The third baseman should be good to go moving forward.

May 9, 2019 03:12 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (knee contusion) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Urshela left Thursday's game after fouling a ball off his knee, and although X-rays came back negative, he'll get at least one day off to rest. Miguel Andujar will start at third base for this contest against Seattle. According to Coley Harvey of ESPN.com, Urshela will be available off the bench Thursday if needed, suggesting the issue isn't anything that will keep him sidelined for an extended period.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: X-rays negative on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela left Wednesday's game against the Mariners with a left knee contusion, but X-rays came back negative, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The third baseman was forced from the contest in the seventh inning after fouling a ball off his knee, but X-rays came back negative, per Hoch, so he looks to have avoided a serious injury. It's possible he could need a day or two to recover, in which case Miguel Andujar would figure to slide in at the hot corner.

May 8, 2019 05:44 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in the Yankees' 5-4 win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

The Yankees were trailing 4-2 with one out in the ninth inning, but Urshela came to the rescue with a game-tying two-run blast off Anthony Swarzak, before DJ LeMahieu got a walkoff hit later in the inning. Urshela was initially expected to see his playing time reduced with Miguel Andujar's return from the injured list, but he's slashing .360/.424/.547 over 75 at-bats, and manager Aaron Boone said he wants to continue to deploy Urshela at the hot corner regularly, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
