Albert Abreu Returning From DL On Friday In Tampa

Albert Abreu started his first season in the New York Yankees organization with flying colors, but after just his second start in High-A Tampa, he was moved to the 7-day DL with elbow inflammation.

Pinstriped Prospects had news of it being more of a ‘cautious approach’ and that the inflammation was not seen to be serious. Abreu went on the DL on May 2nd, and despite his absence, the Tampa Yankees have been able to stay in the race in the FSL North, going 8-5 since May 3rd.

Josh Rogers and Erik Swanson have led the Yankees’ rotation as the lineup continues to try and figure things out at the plate, they’ll be in luck come this weekend as Albert Abreu is rumored to return from the DL and start Friday against the Daytona Tortugas.

Come Friday, Tampa will be heading home after a seven-game road trip in which they’ve played the Clearwater Threshers and Florida Fire Frogs. Domingo Acevedo was set to take the mound Friday, but instead, will be heading to the Double-A Trenton Thunder.
Abreu’s return will have the Yankees rotation as Erik Swanson, Josh Rogers, Domingo Acevedo, Albert Abreu, Taylor Widener, and Zack Littell, until Ian Clarkin returns from his injury as he’s been on the DL since May 4th.
