  • Carlos Rodon "Feeling Good" After Throwing Friday

    New York Yankees starting pitcher Carlos Rodon (forearm) threw on Friday and is said to be doing well. Rodon has been dealing with a mild forearm strain and was shut down from throwing since March 9. While he will start the season on the injured list, this is an encouraging sign in his rehab, which may last only a few more weeks. With injuries to Rodon and fellow starter Frankie Montas, the Yankees will likely depend on Domingo German and Clarke Schmidt to begin the season. Rodon still has an ADP of 57.3, and after a season in which he struck out 237 batters, the only thing holding him back from being a top fantasy arm is the injury.

  • Carlos Rodon Could Miss Only A Few Starts

    New York Yankees left-hander Carlos Rodon's (forearm) rehab for a forearm muscle strain is going well, and his next step will be medical clearance to resume throwing from a shutdown that began on March 9 and is supposed to last up to 10 days. He will begin the season on the injured list but may end up missing only two or three starts if there is no more forearm discomfort once he resumes throwing. "I'm optimistic about the injury itself and the long-term prognosis of it," manager Aaron Boone said. It makes it a little easier to swallow drafting Rodon this spring, although he's not out of the woods yet. The 30-year-old southpaw was great in his only season with the Giants in 2022 with a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and career-high 237 strikeouts in 31 innings, and he was signed to a big free-agent deal to bolster the top of New York's rotation alongside Gerrit Cole.

  • Carlos Rodon Won't Start Season On Time

    New York Yankees left-hander Carlos Rodon (forearm) is dealing with a mild forearm strain and won't throw for the next seven to 10 days, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Rodon will not be ready for the start of the 2023 regular season and will begin on the injured list. It's not what the Yankees had in mind when they signed him to a six-year, $162 million deal in free agency, but at least the 30-year-old southpaw's injury is considered mild, so hopefully he doesn't miss too much time in the season's first month. With Frankie Montas (shoulder) set to miss at least half the season, New York's rotation is looking shaky before the season has even started. The injuries to Rodon and Montas should assure that Clarke Schmidt opens the year in the starting rotation.

  • Nestor Cortes Expected To Begin Season As Fifth Starter

    New York Yankees southpawNestor Cortes(hamstring) is expected to start off the season as the fifth man of the Yankees rotation. According to manager Aaron Boone, the Yankees will ramp up Cortes to begin the season as a precaution to heal his hamstring completely. Cortes withdrew from the WBC after an apparent hamstring injury forced him to back out. The Yankees will start the season with a rotation consisting ofGerrit Cole,Carlos Rodon,Luis Severino,Clarke Schmidt/Domingo German, and Cortes. The 28-year-old will be bumped up to the fourth spot once Boone is comfortable employing him with no setbacks. Cortes is poised for another promising performance in 2023 and hopes to make his second All-Star appearance.
