BREAKING: Yankees Lose Key Reliever For At Least A Month


Yet another injury blow to the New York Yankees' pitching staff.

New York Yankees' right-handed pitcher Ian Hamilton suffered a right-groin injury during a recent game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

As a result, he will be sidelined for at least four weeks and placed on the 15-day injured list starting Wednesday. Hamilton had been performing exceptionally well this season, showcasing his talent with impressive stats.

In his 16 bullpen appearances, he allowed only three runs on 15 hits, while recording nine walks and 30 strikeouts over 22 innings pitched.

In total, he held a shining 1.23 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and averaged 12.3 K/9 over 16 appearances.

This injury comes as a setback for Hamilton, who had just achieved his first career save on May 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays while on the road. The Yankees will now have to rely on other bullpen options to fill the void left by Hamilton's absence.

In a corresponding move, pitcher Nick Ramirez will be called up from the minors to join the team.

Yankees' manager, Aaron Boone, expressed his confidence in the depth of the bullpen and expects other pitchers like Ron Marinaccio and Jimmy Cordero to step up in crucial relief situations.

The team will need to adapt and make adjustments until Hamilton's anticipated return in approximately four weeks. Photo Credit: Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports
