Jonathan Loáisiga, out for 10 days with the Yankees due to injury

Lyou New York Yankees placed Nicaraguan reliever Jonathan Loáisiga on the list of players disqualified by 10 days Sunday for a right shoulder rotator cuff tear.

The manager Aaron Boone reported that Loáisiga felt pain Saturday morning after allowing Jorge Mateo’s home run tie in the seventh inning of 4-3 on Friday over the Baltimore Orioles.

An MRI rrevealed the tear and Loáisiga received a cortisone injection. Boone said that Loáisiga will not pitch for 10 days, in the hope that the powerful pitching right can return this season.

“Hopefully this is something like a short time out. and we can have him back by the close of the regular season, “Boone stressed.

New York started the day in front of the positions for a wild-card berth to the American League playoffs, cwith a half-game lead over Boston.

The 26-year-old Nicaraguan is 9-4 with a 2.25 ERA in 54 appearances. this season. He also has five saves and 66 strikeouts in 68 innings, his most since the 68 2/3 innings he pitched in 2013 in the Dominican Summer League as a minor league player by the San Francisco Giants.

“Obviously this is a heavy loss for us. with just a couple of weeks left, but it’s still something we’ll have to get over, “Boone said.

Loáisiga was also lost two weeks in July after testing positive for COVID-19.
