The Yankees have a rich history littered with awards and records. They're not going to be too happy about their latest, though.
Gio Urshela was placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday. He has a strained groin muscle.
The move was the 29th time this season the Yanks have had a player land on the IL. That's a new single-season MLB record for the number of players a team has sent to the injury list.
"It's been one of the storylines of our season," manager Aaron Boone prior to his team's game on Friday against the Oakland A's.
The previous record was set by the 2016 Dodgers with 28.
Urshela left the Yankees' win over the Mariners on Wednesday. But neither Urshela or Boone were overly concerned about the injury.
"It feels like something that's probably a few days, but with an off day (Thursday) and an off day coming (Thursday) and just the time of year it is, he's a little banged up anyway, so it's probably the best thing for him and for us to do this now and make sure this doesn't become a lingering issue," Boone said.
