Yankees put All-Star Cortes on injured list for groin strain

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — New York Yankees All-Star left-hander Nestor Cortes went on the 15-day hurt checklist Thursday with a strained still left groin.

The move was retroactive to Monday. The 27-yr-old Cuban is 9-4 with a 2.68 Period about 23 starts and a occupation-finest 131 innings this year. He is -1 over 4 commences this thirty day period.

The AL East leaders also reinstated slugger Giancarlo Stanton from the 10-working day hurt list just after he’d been sidelined by still left Achilles tendinitis. He was in the lineup as designated hitter and batting third for the get started of a 4-sport sequence at Oakland on Thursday night.

Stanton is probable to be the DH for several video games originally as he gears up to return to the outfield. Supervisor Aaron Boone said the Yankees relied on Stanton’s term that he was completely ready to play all over again.

“Just sort of listening to him. He is aware himself perfectly,” Boone claimed. “Really energized to get him back again.”
