NEW YORK (AP) – Josh Donaldson was activated from a 10-day injured list and joined the New York Yankees on Friday night for the first time since suspension by Major League Baseball for a remark to Chicago White Sox star Tim Anderson. .
Donaldson was suspended in one game for making several mentions of Jackie Robinson during an interview with Anderson on May 21. Donaldson appealed the discipline.
Donaldson played the next day against Chicago, but has been out of lineup since then due to COVID-19 and right shoulder inflammation. Upon his return, he was to play third base and clear the bats against the Detroit Tigers.
The AL MVP 2015 reaches 0.239 with five homers, 15 RBI and 0.764 OPS during 37 matches in its first season with New York.
Donaldson was isolated from the team a few days after the Anderson incident because he had symptoms of COVID-19. When he returned, he said it hurt that his teammates did not support him.
He is likely to receive a warm welcome from fans when they whistled Anderson in the series finals on May 22 against the White Sox.
Meanwhile, the Yankees, who helped Chad Green, underwent Tommy John’s operation and are likely to be shut down by at least the summer of 2023.
New York said the right-wing collateral ligament was reconstructed on Wednesday by Texas Rangers team doctor Dr. Keith Meister at the Trinity Park Surgery Center in Arlington, Texas.
Green, 31, is eligible for free representation after this year’s World Series. In 14 games, he was 1: 1 with an ERA of 3.00 when he was injured during the sixth shift in Baltimore on May 19.
Green said after the match that he felt discomfort in his right forearm. Two days later, the Yankees put him on the injured list after 15 days, and on May 27, he was put on the injured list after 60 days.
Green is 33-22 with an ERA of 3.17 over seven major league seasons and a salary of $ 4 million this year. Last year, he had a 10-7 with an ERA of 3.12 in 67 appearances, winning 99 in 83 2/3 innings.
