DJ LaMahieu heading to IL, continues to deal with toe injury – Boston Herald


DJ LaMahieu is heading to the 10-day injured list, Yankees manager Aaron Boone announced on Thursday.

The first baseman will be sidelined due to right second toe inflammation. The IL stint is retroactive to Sept. 5

Boone made the announcement during an appearance on “The Michael Kay Show.” The manager also said Miguel Andujar will fill in the roster spot while LaMahieu nurses the injured toe.

The move comes after the versatile slugger didn’t get any action during the doubleheader Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins. LaMahieu was available as a substitute, but stayed in the dugout the whole day, an indicator that a move to the IL was possible.

The lingering toe injury has clearly hampered LaMahieu over the past couple weeks. He went 0-for-11 with a walk in three games in the series against the Rays that ended Sunday.

After losing a series at Fenway Park last month, he admitted that the toe affected him.

He also received a cortisone shot during the All-Star break.

The two-time batting champ has dealt with a foot injury earlier this season and a sports hernia last season.
