Sizing Up the Injury to Gary Sanchez

Special from Virginia Zakas, InsideInjuries.com April 11, 2017
The Yankees had high hopes for their young catcher entering the 2017 season, but Gary Sanchez now faces a lengthy absence due to a biceps strain in his right arm. Sanchez was hurt on a swing over the weekend, grimacing after fouling off a 3-2 fastball. He had not experienced any pain before that swing, so the injury happened in that moment. It was not an overuse injury. The first few days he was unable to lift his arm, but that has now improved.

The Inside Injuries algorithm has calculated a grade 2 biceps strain. This comes with an Optimal Recovery Time of four weeks, in line with his current timeline. There could be some minor tearing to the biceps that will heal on its own.
