The New York Yankees placed third baseman DJ LeMahieu on the 10-day injured list due to a non-displaced fracture on his right foot. Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed the news before their Saturday game against the Houston Astros.

Yankees fans can celebrate after the swelling on LeMahieu’s injured foot has already subsided. However, he underwent a second MRI to assess if there was a fracture after his injury was initially ruled a bone bruise.

The team is fully committed to DJ LeMahieu's recovery and will not rush his return. He will rehabilitate at the team’s spring training facility in Tampa, Florida, and have another imaging in two weeks to monitor his progress.

His return remains indefinite, depending on his healing. However, Boone said that returning in April could be possible but uncertain.

It’s not the first time DJ LeMahieu has suffered a foot injury. In 2022, he broke a bone in his right big toe, which damaged ligaments. The injury affected his performance, especially in hitting.

LeMahieu is a four-time Gold Glove winner, a two-time Silver Slugger, and a three-time All-Star. He finished fourth in the American League Most Valuable Player voting in 2019 and third a year later. He last received a Gold Glove in 2022 after spending time playing first, second, and third base.
