Yankees' Gio Urshela: Drives in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored, three RBI and a walk as the Yankees split Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

The 28-year-old started at third base in both games of the twin bill and was a productive part of the offense in both contests. Urshela has a .341/.423/.636 slash line with three homers, 10 runs, 13 RBI and one stolen base in 14 games.

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

Urshela will sit for the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

The Yankees are able to rest several players given the expanded rosters this season. Miguel Andujar starts at the hot corner for Game 1 of the doubleheader, but there's a good chance Urshela will be in the lineup for Game 2.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Slams three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a win over Philadelphia on Monday.

Urshela struck out twice in the contest, but he more than made up for the whiffs with a three-run shot in the sixth inning to break the game open. The 28-year-old has followed a breakout 2019 campaign with a strong start this season, slashing .300/.400/.667 with three homers and nine RBI through 35 plate appearances.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Three-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's 9-7 win over the Red Sox.

Urshela's biggest contribution to the offense came in the third inning, when his double knocked in Gary Sanchez for the tying run. The third baseman wasn't able to homer for a third straight game, but Urshela's batting .308 after the three-hit effort. He has two homers, six RBI and six runs scored in eight games this year.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Launches grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 1-for-3 with a grand slam, a stolen base and a walk during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Red Sox.

The 28-year-old was 2-for-15 with one extra-base hit through the first five games of the season, but he's 3-for-7 with two home runs in the past two games. Even before the recent hot streak Urshela was still seeing the ball well, as he's already walked five times in 26 plate appearances.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Hits first home run of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's win against the Red Sox.

Urshela blasted his first home run of the season to lead off the fourth inning of the 5-1 win. The 28-year-old hadn't been particularly effective at the plate prior to Friday's performance, but he's now hitting .211 with two extra-base hits and one RBI over his first six games this year.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Injury not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (undisclosed) isn't seriously injured and is expected to play in Saturday's exhibition game against the Mets, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Urshela walked off the practice field with a team trainer, but the Yankees evidently aren't concerned with the issue. Assuming he is indeed healthy, he's expected to be the team's primary third baseman this season.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Exits practice with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela left the Yankees' workout Saturday with an undisclosed injury, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Urshela lay down in foul territory before walking off the field with a team trainer. It's not clear exactly what ailed him, though the team should provide an update following further tests. Urshela is lined up to start at the hot corner this season, with Miguel Andujar likely to see an expanded role should he be unable to play.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Entering campaign as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela will be the Yankees' regular third baseman when the 2020 season commences, Pete Caldera of NorthJersey.com reports.

Urshela was a non-roster invitee to spring training last season and started the campaign in the minors. One year later, he is projected to have his name penciled into the potent Yankees lineup on a near-everyday basis due to an out-of-nowhere 2019 showing in which he slashed .314/.355/.534 and flashed impressive glovework. Per Caldera, Urshela's growth can be in part attributed to mechanical adjustments that have resulted in a compacted swing. Though he hit a modest .233/.361/.367 in Grapefruit League play, Urshela should have plenty of opportunity to prove that last season was not a fluke when the 2020 campaign gets underway.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Viewed as primary third baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela will enter spring training as the presumed starting third baseman for the Yankees, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

General manager Brian Cashman confirmed the starting job at third base heading into 2020 is Urshela's to lose after the 28-year-old hit .314/.355/.534 with 21 home runs across 132 games for the Yankees in 2019.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Gets $2.475 million from Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela agreed to a one-year, $2.475 million deal with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

His breakout 2019 season came at a good time, just before his first offseason as an arbitration-eligible player. He will go through the process three more times before hitting the open market after the 2023 season.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (ankle) will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Twins on Friday, batting ninth and playing third base.

Urshela emerged from obscurity to become a key member of the Yankees' lineup this year, hitting .314/.355/.534 over 132 games. He suffered a sprained ankle in the final game of the regular season but won't wind up missing any further action.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Will make ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (ankle) went through a full workout Tuesday and is expected to make the Yankees' ALDS roster, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Urshela left the final game of the regular season Sunday against the Rangers with a mild ankle sprain, but the issue apparently wasn't a significant one. Expect him to play a role in the division series against the Twins.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Diagnosed with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela is dealing with a mild left ankle sprain and was removed from Sunday's game against the Rangers for precautionary reasons, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Urshela has been banged up at the tail end of the regular season, but the Yankees don't believe his latest setback on the health front will jeopardize his availability for the club's ALDS series with the Twins that begins Friday. Urshela is viewed as day-to-day with the injury and isn't scheduled to undergo further testing.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Exits with apparent ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela was removed from Sunday's game at Texas with an apparent left ankle injury, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the Yankees had every reason to pull Urshela at the first sign of danger in the final game of the regular season. The 27-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury, and he'll have a few days to rest up before potentially missing any action heading into Game 1 of the ALDS versus the Twins on Friday.

Yankees' Gio Urshela: Cracks 21st homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (hand) went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and another run scored in Friday's win over the Rangers.

Urshela extended the Yankees' lead with a home run in the sixth inning in his first game back after he was hit in the hand by a pitch during Tuesday's game. Across 437 at-bats this season, Urshela is slashing .316/.357/.538 with 21 home runs.

September 27, 2019 05:16 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (hand) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers.

Urshela left Tuesday's game after getting hit in the hand by a pitch, but the injury evidently wasn't a particularly serious one. He'll bat seventh and play third base Friday.

September 26, 2019 10:56 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela (hand) will sit Wednesday against the Rays.

Urshela left Tuesday's game after getting hit by a pitch in the hand. His X-rays were negative, and although manager Aaron Boone suggested he may not have to miss any time, that was apparently overly optimistic. He'll sit for at least one game and will get another rest with the Yankees' scheduled off day coming up Thursday. According to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, he's expected to rejoin the lineup Friday against the Rangers.

September 25, 2019 02:08 PM
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Little concern about injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said that Urshela may not miss any further games after exiting Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Rays in the seventh inning with a bruised left hand, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "Not necessarily," Boone said, when asked if Urshela would miss the Yankees' final four games with the injury. "Certainly, if he has an issue with it [Wednesday], then yes, but I don't necessarily at this point look at it as he's automatically down."

Urshela took a 95-mile-per-hour pitch off the hand during a fifth-inning plate appearance, prompting the Yankees to pull him before his next turn through the lineup came up. Fortunately, X-rays conducted later in the night cleared Urshela of any structural damage, but he'll be re-evaluated Wednesday before the Yankees assess his availability for the series finale in Tampa Bay. The Yankees aren't planning on sending Urshela in for further tests, so he seemingly has a good shot at playing this weekend in Texas even if he's not in the lineup Wednesday.

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

X-rays on Urshela's left hand were negative, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

He was hit on the hand by a 95-mph fastball and eventually exited the contest due to significant swelling and bruising. Urshela is day-to-day with a bruised hand and four games left in the regular season. DJ LeMahieu will work as the primary third baseman while Urshela is sidelined.
