  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Hits 10-day IL

    The Yankees placed Bader (oblique) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    The transaction is retroactive to Monday, but considering that he didn't play in any Grapefruit League games after March 8 while recovering from a left oblique strain, Bader probably won't be cleared to return from the IL when first eligible April 6. Bader at least seems to be making good progress in his recovery from the injury, as he's expected to resume swinging a bat soon and should steadily incorporate other baseball activities into his training regimen. While Bader is shelved to begin the season, Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Isiah Kiner-Falefa could see more time in center field.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Hoping to swing bat soon

    Bader (oblique) said Thursday that he's hoping to start swinging a bat "really soon," Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Bader didn't offer a specific day when he might be cleared to swing a bat, but he added that he's had "absolutely no setbacks, no pain" with his left oblique. The initial timetable offered when Bader was injured two weeks ago was six weeks, but it's looking like he might make it back a little sooner than that. A mid-April return seems possible.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Doing better than anticipated

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters Saturday that Bader (oblique) is doing "better than we anticipated," Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Bader was diagnosed with an oblique strain last week, and the expectation was that the outfielder would miss approximately six weeks. Based on Boone's comments, it's possible that timeline could be shortened, but it still seems likely Bader will open the year on the injured list. Assuming he continues to recover quickly, it could be a much shorter stay on the IL for the presumed starter in center for the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Six-week absence expected

    Bader's oblique strain is expected to keep him out for approximately six weeks, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    Bader was sent for tests Thursday after feeling tightness in his left oblique. The given timeline means Bader is all but a lock to begin the year on the injured list and likely won't make his season debut until late April at the earliest. Aaron Judge or Aaron Hicks could slide to center in his absence.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Diagnosed with oblique strain

    Bader has been diagnosed with a left oblique strain, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    It's not clear at this point what the severity of the strain is, but it's a safe assumption that Bader will begin the season on the injured list and could potential miss multiple weeks. Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks are candidates to slide over to center field while Bader is out, and an out-of-options Estevan Florial could also see playing time there. Additionally, Oswaldo Cabrera has been giving center field a try this spring.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Sent for tests on left oblique

    Bader was sent for tests Thursday after experiencing discomfort in his left oblique, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Bader felt something in that area Wednesday, presumably while going 0-for-2 with a strikeout in the Yankees' Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. It's still relatively early into spring camp, and New York has already had some absolutely terrible injury luck. More should be known Friday about the severity of Bader's oblique issue.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Another homer in loss

    Bader went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two additional runs scored during Sunday's 6-5 loss in Game 4 of the ALCS.

    Bader finished his outstanding 2022 postseason with his fifth homer, a blast off Hector Neris that put the Yankees up 5-4 at the time. The 28-year-old was one of the few bright spots for the Yankees in the postseason, hitting 10-for-30 with eight runs scored and six RBI. Prior to 2022, Bader had been 3-for-22 with zero extra-base hits across three playoff campaigns, so his effort this postseason is a step forward for the New York native.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Batting leadoff in Game 2

    Bader is starting in center field and hitting leadoff in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday.

    The 28-year-old is 5-for-19 with four home runs and two walks through six games in the playoffs, and he'll hit atop the order after New York mustered only five hits and two runs during Wednesday's series-opening loss. Bader should benefit from the move and now has some protection with AL MVP-favorite Aaron Judge hitting behind him.

  • Yankees' Harrison Bader: Slams solo shot in Game 1

    Bader went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Game 1 of the ALCS in the 4-2 loss to the Astros on Wednesday night.

    Bader scored the game's first run with a 411-foot shot to left field off Justin Verlander. The native New Yorker is in the midst of a massive power surge during the 2022 postseason. After hitting just five home runs in 292 at bats during the regular season, he already has four home runs in 19 at bats during the postseason. Shockingly, Bader has as many homers in the postseason as Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton combined, and he is proving to be a crucial acquisition from the Cardinals at the trade deadline.
