New York Yankees Third Baseman Suffers Hamstring Injury

New York Yankees' manager, Aaron Boone, has provided an update on Josh Donaldson's hamstring strain, which he sustained during Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

According to Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News, Boone stated that the injury is not believed to be too serious and that there is currently no concern about a lengthy absence.

While the team may still decide to conduct an MRI to evaluate the extent of the injury, Boone's comments suggest that Donaldson may not be out of action for an extended period.

Despite this, it appears unlikely that Donaldson will avoid being placed on the 10-day injured list. Fortunately, the Yankees have options to cover for him, with DJ LeMahieu and Oswaldo Cabrera able to fill in at third base.

The team now has a day off on Thursday before heading to Baltimore for a weekend series.
