Travis Hafner has had some soreness in his right shoulder lately and the Yankees DH is going to attempt to get some answers. Hafner will sit out a few games and undergo an MRI according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.
Hafner has had a long list of injuries during his career so the Yankees will not push the 35-year-old too hard this early in the season.
The return of Curtis Granderson will allow the Yankees to rotate players into the DH role. Granderson’s return should more then make up for Hafner’s absence.
Hafner has a .260/.383/.510 line with 6 home runs and 18 RBI in 115 plate appearances this season.
