The Yankees’ manager said that they do not know the severity of the injury. “Not sure if it’s the calf if it’s part of the calf, or what. We’ll know more in the morning,” Boone said.

While talking about DJ LeMahieu, Boone provided some good news to the Yankees fans. According to Boone, LeMahieu will be fine in a couple of days. Because his MRI report came clean on Tuesday.

“Really good news,” Boone informed. “We’re pretty optimistic that hopefully, he’s back, if not tomorrow, the next day probably.”
