With the New York Yankees now owners of a four-game win streak, some of their big boppers could be on their way back soon. Let’s take a peek at the latest with their injured infielders.

It seems like the New York Yankees’ lineup is firing on all cylinders. Didi Gregorius has brought his home run swing back to the Bronx and both Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge are smashing records with each big fly.

Right now, the Yankees don’t seem to need reinforcements. However, there are a few that are making their way back to the Bronx to strengthen that lineup.

Brandon Drury has finally gotten some answers as to his mysterious blurry vision he’s been suffering from for quite some time. According to the Daniel Popper of the New York Daily News, Drury’s problems stem from an irritated tendon in his neck. Now, he is ready to get back out there.


While this is all exciting news, with Miguel Andujar doing insane things at the plate, it’s hard to find that Drury will be handed his slot at third base upon return. But, stranger things have happened!

And what about our favorite first baseman, Greg Bird? It’s easy to forget about his absence with Tyler Austin tearing it up in his place but we’ve got an update on him too, thanks to Aaron Boone’s recent chat with reporters.

With Bird in the lineup, the Yankees will have two incredibly strong power hitters in Gregorius and Bird. His return will make the lineup that much better.

But wait, there’s more! What about Clint Frazier?

Luckily, Frazier is making progress in his return from a concussion and will officially start his rehab assignment with the Single-A Tampa Tarpons on Thursday, as reported by Sweeny Murti.

With an already stacked lineup, the Yankees are also hoping to make their farm system even better by going after some international prospects.

While there aren’t major stats on these studs, having them on the Top 30 International Prospect list is a pretty good start. And for the Yankees, we’ve seen the success they’ve had on the international market. They can start stacking up the farm system for several years down the road.

Right now, the Yankees are in pretty good shape. Let’s see if they can keep it rolling until their injured crew comes back to play.
