INJURY: Justus Sheffield placed on 7-day DL with shoulder stiffness
New York Yankees pitching prospect Justus Sheffield has been placed on the 7-day DL with shoulder stiffness. He was removed from his second AAA start on May 11 due to the shoulder problem. It sounds like the Yankees are just being cautious with their 22-year-old pitching prospect. If he’s healthy and pitching well at AAA, we wouldn’t rule out a trip to the Bronx this summer.
