  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Heads back to injured list

    Britton was placed on the 60-day injured list with left shoulder fatigue Saturday.

    Britton was removed from Friday's relief appearance due to his shoulder issue, and the injury will force him to miss the remainder of the regular season and the entire postseason. The southpaw made just three major-league appearances in 2022 and allowed a run on a hit and six walks while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning. Jacob Barnes' contract was selected to take Britton's place in the bullpen.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Exits with arm fatigue

    Britton left Friday's game against the Orioles with left arm fatigue, Marly Rivera of reports.

    He came in to relieve Domingo German in the middle of the sixth inning and walked a batter and then left with the injury before recording an out. It's unclear how long Britton will be unavailable.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Struggles in season debut

    Britton picked up a hold against Boston on Saturday despite allowing one run on one hit and three walks over one-third of an inning. He recorded a strikeout for his only out.

    Britton made his season debut after he underwent surgery to repair his UCL last September. The veteran reliever was clearly rusty, throwing only seven of 19 pitches for strikes and issuing three free passes. He'll look to shake the rust over the remainder of the regular season with the goal of being in strong form for the playoffs.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Activated by Yankees

    Britton (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Britton said Wednesday that he felt ready to return after completing his rehab assignment, and he'll be available out of the bullpen for Thursday's series opener against the Red Sox. He posted a 1.35 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 6.2 innings over eight appearances during his rehab assignment, and it's possible the southpaw is eased into action with some low-leverage opportunities in the near future.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Feels ready to return

    Britton (elbow) rejoined the Yankees on Wednesday and could be activated from the 60-day injured list within the next few days, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Britton, who has been on the shelf all season while recovering from the UCL surgery he underwent last September, confirmed that he has completed his minor-league rehab assignment, which he began Aug. 24. Between stops at Single-A Tampa, Double-A Somerset and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Britton cobbled together a 1.35 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB across 6.2 innings. Given his lengthy layoff from big-league action, Britton could be eased back into the New York bullpen in a low-leverage role, despite his strong showing on the rehab assignment and his excellent track record in the majors for his career.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Britton (elbow) is scheduled to move his rehab assignment Wednesday from Single-A Tampa to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Justin Shackil of WFAN Sports Radio 66 New York reports.

    Britton will get a stiffer test for his rehab assignment after he gave up one earned run on two hits and no walks while striking out three across his three rehab appearances at Tampa. According to manager Aaron Boone, Britton is scheduled to pitch an inning Wednesday and is expected to make several appearances for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before returning from the 60-day injured list. The veteran lefty looks on track to join the Yankees' bullpen at some point in the middle of September.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Resumes rehab assignment

    Britton (elbow) struck out two batters in a scoreless inning for Single-A Tampa on Saturday.

    Britton left his previous minor-league appearance with an apparent injury after just 10 pitches, but the cause turned out to be a minor glute issue. He returned to the mound Saturday and tossed an impressive frame during the resumption of a contest that had been suspended Thursday. Britton will likely need more rehab outings before he's ready to rejoin the Yankees, but there is optimism that he'll be able to return in time to help the big club down the stretch.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Glute injury confirmed

    Britton (elbow) suffered a glute injury in a rehab appearance with Single-A Tampa on Saturday, per

    This qualifies as good news, as the injury doesn't appear to be serious and isn't related to the UCL surgery Britton underwent last September. The veteran reliever reportedly told Yankees manager Aaron Boone that his arm feels great and that the glute issue isn't a concern. Britton is expected to throw a bullpen session in a few days and could resume his rehab stint shortly thereafter.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Exits rehab outing early

    Britton (elbow) threw only 10 pitches in a rehab appearance with Single-A Tampa on Saturday before exiting with a possible injury, reports.

    This was Britton's second rehab outing following UCL surgery last September, and he reportedly stopped mid-motion during his 11th pitch and walked off the mound with a trainer, per Erik Boland of Newsday. However, the veteran reliever later dispelled the notion that he injured his arm via his own Twitter account, stating, "I just know how things can get blown out of proportion. I'm good. Arm feels great." Yankees manager Aaron Boone suggested after Saturday's major-league contest that Britton's issue could be glute-related, which would obviously be a sigh of relief. The hope has been that Britton could join the Yankees' bullpen in September, but it remains to be seen if Saturday's early exit will impact his return timeline.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Begins rehab assignment Wednesday

    Britton (elbow) will start a rehab assignment Wednesday with Single-A Tampa, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    He won't throw more than 15 pitches Wednesday, but this is the critical final step in his rehab, so Britton remains on track to join the big-league bullpen sometime in early September. The Yankees' bullpen is currently in flux, as Clay Holmes (back) and Scott Effross (shoulder) are on the injured list while Aroldis Chapman, Lou Trivino and Jonathan Loaisiga jockey for save chances.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Feels good after 'pen session

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Britton (elbow) responded well to his 18-pitch bullpen session Saturday, but the left-hander remains without a concrete timeline to head out on a rehab assignment, Joe Trezza of reports.

    Britton isn't dealing with any setbacks in his recovery from the UCL surgery he had on his left elbow last September, but the Yankees are still inclined to proceed cautiously with him coming off a major arm injury. Whenever he starts up a rehab assignment, the 34-year-old will likely need a week or two of appearances to get fully ramped up, so he's not expected to be a realistic option for the Yankees bullpen until September.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Nearing rehab assignment

    Britton (elbow) will throw another live bullpen session Saturday and is expected to begin pitching in rehab games soon, Max Goodman of reports.

    Britton has been throwing to live hitters for several weeks, and he appears to be on the cusp of beginning a minor-league rehab assignment. The left-handed reliever hasn't seen game action since 2021, so he'll likely need several rehab appearances before he's ready to make his season debut for the big club. The Yankees have indicated a belief that Britton can contribute to the bullpen at some point in September.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Faces live hitters

    Britton (elbow) threw to live hitters at the Yankees' spring training complex in Florida on Wednesday, per the Associated Press.

    This was a significant step in Britton's journey to pitch for the Yankees this season, as it was his first time facing live hitters since undergoing surgery to repair the UCL in his left elbow last September. The left-hander will likely need to face live hitters a few more times before a minor-league rehab assignment is considered. If all goes well moving forward, Britton could return to the Yankees in September.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Nearing next step in recovery

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that Britton (elbow) could face live hitters in about 10 days, per

    Britton has been throwing bullpen sessions for about two months and is nearing the next step in his rehab from surgery to repair the UCL in his left elbow. He's expected to face live hitters a few times before potentially beginning a minor-league rehab assignment. Though the organization won't rush him back into action, it remains feasible that Britton could make his season debut with the Yankees sometime in September.
