Latest Yankees injury heightens pressure to regroup amid slump

The New York Yankees have been struggling to play to their potential lately, and their latest injury could spell more trouble for them.

The New York Yankees have been struggling to play to their potential lately, as shown by their series loss against their biggest rival, the Boston Red Sox.

The Yankees have been one of the best teams in the league. They currently sit comfortably at the top of the AL East standings, but that may change as they navigate lineup changes.

Lemahieu has not been announced on the injured list, but it is likely he will be after further tests are conducted in New York. Losing him would be a big adjustment.

LeMahieu is the third best hitter in New York this season behind Aaron Judge and Matt Carpenter. He's currently hitting .279/.381/.417 for an Ops of .798.

The Yankees may be the best team in the AL East, but their lineup has problems that losing one of their major contributors could make things worse.

The roster will change significantly to make up for LeMahieu's absence. Best case scenario would be LeMahieu avoiding the injured list and recovering quickly.
