We recap the latest New York Yankees news regarding prospect Gleyber Torres, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius as they return from their prospective injuries.

The first home stand of the year for the New York Yankees has been an exciting affair. The team swept the Tampa Bay Rays, the St. Louis Cardinals, and completed a series against the Chicago White Sox.

Even though they just finished a successful nine-game homestand, they did have to face the injury bug — especially at the Double-A level.

On Tuesday night, Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres was scratched from the lineup with shoulder discomfort. On Wednesday night, the Yankees got an answer regarding their prospect…and it wasn’t the best news.

So, the Trenton Thunder is going to be without their shortstop for the next week. But even though it’s a slight inconvenience, the Yankees don’t think he’ll be out for long. They expect the injury to heal quickly and remotely aren’t concerned about him.

While Torres was placed on the disabled list, Gary Sanchez is one step closer to coming off the disabled list. Sanchez put in a little work on Wednesday afternoon at the stadium, and while there isn’t a timetable for his return, his progress is extremely encouraging.Gary Sanchez, after throwing for the

Gary Sanchez, after throwing for first time today, said he felt no pain or discomfort in biceps. He also took some dry swings.

After his workout, Sanchez took to Twitter to assure Yankees fans that all went well.

The Yankees are hoping Sanchez returns soon since his bat is a huge asset in the lineup. But in the meantime, Austin Romine is doing a great job behind the plate.

Finally, we have an actual date when Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius will start a rehab assignment for the Bronx Bombers.

Gregorius was placed on the disabled list prior with a shoulder injury he acquired during the World Baseball Classic. However, since he has an actual date to begin a rehab assignment, his return to the Yankees doesn’t seem far off.

The Yankees are off today, but they’ll return to action as they face the Pittsburgh Pirates in a three game stretch. CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees and Tyler Glasnow will start for the Pirates. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m., and the game will be televised on the YES Network.
