Breaking New: Nestor Cortes New York Yankees pitcher Announced his Departure Due to…

Nestor Cortes of the New York Yankees will now need to recover from his injury until early August.

Nestor Cortes Jr., a left-handed pitcher, will not be able to play again until at least August 3rd as a result of the New York Yankees moving him on the 60-day injured list.


On Friday, the New York Yankees placed left-handed pitcher Nestor Cortes Jr. on the 60-day disabled list in a procedural step.

The following information is from the fantasy baseball portal Rotowire:

On Friday, Cortes (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day disabled list.

The action makes room on the 40-man roster for Carlos Rodon’s comeback. Cortes will now not be available for activation until August 3, despite the fact that he is scheduled to play against hitters this weekend and doesn’t appear to be too far away from a rehab assignment. He and the Yankees are merely wanting to take things carefully; he has not experienced any setbacks.

Cortes hasn’t been the pitcher he was a year ago, even while healthy this season. Despite having a 5-2 record, the 28-year-old has struggled to a 5.16 ERA and 1.30 WHIP.

He was an All-Star last season, going 12-4 with a 2.44 ERA.

After traveling around for a few years, he found a home with the Yankees, where he has stayed since 2021. Before returning to New York, he played for the Orioles in 2018, the Yankees in 2019, and the Mariners in 2020.

Rodon should be activated even though Cortes will suffer from the move. He has missed the entire season due to back and forearm issues. This offseason, he inked a six-year contract with the Yankees.

On Friday night, the Yankees will play the Chicago Cubs at Yankee Stadium. The Cubs are ahead 40-46 while the Yankees are 48-40 as play begins.
