Elbow, biceps, wrist.  Yep now we know. ... nothing yet. 

Anyway, damn.  Why couldn't he just catch the flu like Red Sox players do.  Then he wouldn't have gotten injured today.  Flu can be your friend.

PS:  I vote for Option D above -- hyper extended elbow -- if "flu" isn't an option.

Yes, since this injury was totally predictable. :rolleyes:

Doesn't change the fact that a highly invested player is going to be riding the pine for who knows how long. Wishing I would've played it safe with a guy that had more of a track record of consistent MLB AB's.

Thank you for being the bringer of good news. 

Now please explain to me what that is and how long it will take for my man Gary to catch for my fantasy teams again.

Depends on the grade of the strain, but if it's any consolation, Garrett Richards was just diagnosed with the same injury and is expected to miss just one start.  If a pitcher can return in that short amount of time where their livelihood depends on throwing, one would think Sanchez shouldn't be out too long.  I'm not a doctor though....prolly depends on severity of strain.

You do realize that the "safe" play could have picked up a bat, swung it and suffered a biceps injury, right?

I 100% promise you in the span of the last :30 minutes the Yankees medical staff hasn't taken an MRI/CT scan & determined it was a biceps strain.  There's zero doubt they'll do one or the other and determine if he has a strain or tear near the injury site.  They're calling it a strain as that's what it is till further medical tests are completed.

 

Heck, they call knee injuries "strains" till they do further medical tests to determine the severity when in actuality with a knee, they know pretty much immediately through simple tests done on the field.
