NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — This is getting absurd.
The Yankees’ inexplicable collection of injuries grew by one more on Wednesday when Troy Tulowitzki left the 2-1 loss to Detroit with a calf injury. On Thursday, he was placed on the 10-day injured list, upping New York’s official total of sidelined players to 10 just six games into the season.READ MORE: First Case Of Omicron Variant Reported In New Jersey

A five-time All-Star infielder who missed much of the last two seasons due to a number of injuries, Tulowitzki signed a one-year, $555,000 contract with the Yankees this offseason. The Toronto Blue Jays, his previous team, are paying the 34-year-old roughly $20 million in 2019 and are responsible for $18 million over the next two years.
Tulowitzki is hitting .182 (2-for-11) with one home run and one RBI in five games.
The Yankees called up 23-year-old infielder Thairo Estrada from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Tulowitzki’s spot on the roster.MORE NEWS: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Back On Stage After Pandemic Shutdown With Message Of Hope
