Yankees place Chris Gittens (ankle) on IL

The New York Yankees place Chris Gittens (ankle) on the 10-day injured list.

What It Means:

Gittens is off to the 10-day IL with a right ankle sprain. D.J. LeMahieu will start at first base, and Gio Urshela will return to third base and bat seventh in his return from the reserve/COVID list.

When Gittens returns, our models project him for 62 more plate appearances this season, with 1 home run, 5 runs, 6 RBI, and a .185 batting average.
