Recently, Yankees manager Aaron Boone gave good news about the following players’ injuries.
Update injury status for Harrison Bader, Carlos Rodon, Luis Severino, and others
The next bullpen session for starting pitcher Carlos Rodon (left forearm strain) will take place this weekend, and hitters will stand in the batter’s box. Rodon will then throw two simulated innings.
This is the last thing Rodon needs to do before going to rehab. If everything goes well, he will probably come back in May.
Harrison Bader, who hurt his left oblique and won’t be back until mid- to late-April, took 25 dry swings on Monday.
Bader told Boone that for his last dozen or so swings, he was “letting it rip” and that he feels great. During batting practice over the weekend, Bader also worked on how quickly he could react in the outfield.
Still, there is no set date for when he could start playing in rehab games.
Tommy Kahnle, who has tendinitis in his right bicep, should be able to start playing catch in the next few days. Then he will start getting stronger so he can get back on the mound.

Lou Trivino threw off the mound a few days ago because he hurt his right elbow. Due to the nature of his injury, the Yankees are taking their time with Trivino. He might be back in late April or early May.
Luis Severino, the starting pitcher, has been doing a light throwing program because of a low-grade right lat strain. He threw on two days in a row over the weekend, which gave Boone hope.
The Yankees are taking it easy on Severino, who could be back in April or May.
