Yankees Get Harsh Injury Update on $90 Million 4-Time Gold Glove Infielder

The New York Yankees will be without third baseman DJ LeMahieu for longer than expected after a second MRI on his fractured foot revealed a fracture.

"DJ LeMahieu has a non-displaced bone fracture, Aaron Boone said," according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "He will be re-imaged in two weeks."

LeMahieu started the season on the disabled list after fouling a fastball off his foot. The team recently decided to seek further investigation because the swelling took longer than expected to diminish.

"He'll be reevaluated in two weeks but is now clearly facing a lengthier absence than originally anticipated," a source told MLB Trade Rumors.

"The Yankees didn't provide a timeline beyond that two-week reevaluation, but at the very least LeMahieu will be sidelined into late April — although an absence extending beyond that seems likely."

Faced with a shortage of infield depth following LeMahieu's injury, the Yankees made a three-team trade to acquire utility man Jon Berti from the Miami Marlins. 

Oswaldo Cabrera has dominated the hot corner this season, with six hits and four RBI in just nine at bats. 

However, the possibilities beyond Cabrera are limited. Cabrera is listed as the only backup behind first baseman Anthony Volpe, as well as the primary shortstop and second base option.
