Which Yankees players will begin 2024 season on injured list?

The New York Yankees trimmed the roster down to 26 players as the regular season officially arrived Thursday. That meant placing a handful of players on the injured list.

Some of the players starting the season on the IL will be there for a while. Others could be activated as soon as the stint is concluded. The biggest news, which didn’t come as much of a surprise, was ace Gerrit Cole being placed on the 60-day injured list.

Cole’s earliest return date would be May 27, which is in the middle of a West Coast road trip. Whether he will need more time to heal and rehab after the 60 days concludes remains to be seen.

Here’s a look at the players the Yankees placed on the injured list to begin the season:

  • RHP Gerrit Cole (elbow) — 60-day
  • INF D.J. LeMahieu (foot) — 10-day, retroactive to March 25
  • RHP Tommy Kahnle (shoulder) — 15-day, retroactive to March 25
  • INF Oswald Peraza (shoulder) — 15-day, retroactive to March 25
  • RHP McKinley Moore (knee) — 15-day, retroactive to March 25

In total, the Yankees have eight players on the injured list as outfielder Jasson Dominguez (elbow) and pitchers Scott Effross (back) and Lou Trivino (elbow) are still working their way through injuries from previous seasons.

LeMahieu and Kahnle should be back sooner rather than later, barring any setbacks in their recoveries.
