The New York Yankees can’t catch a break, as relief arm Zack Britton suffered a wrist injury that came back negative on MRIs. With Luis Severino already missing the entire 2020 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery and James Paxton missing several months with a cyst in his lower back, the Yankees pitching corps is quickly being torn apart by the injury bug.
Earlier today, LHP Zack Britton suffered a bruised right wrist. X-rays and a CT scan were negative.

The injury to Britton’s wrist doesn’t seem to be anything too serious, which is a positive sign as Opening Day grows closer and closer. Hopefully, he will be good to return against the Baltimore Orioles on March 26.
