Yankees Top Reliever to Hit the IL With “Significant” Forearm Strain

BRONX, NY: RHP Jonathan Loáisiga had an MRI last night that revealed a “significant” forearm strain stated manager Aaron Boone. Loáisiga was then added to the Yankees 60-day IL, meaning that the reliever will be out until at least June, per Bryan Hoch of

The worst part about this for Loáisiga, this marks yet another injury for the promising reliever. Loáisiga has now been on the IL for arm-related injuries in five of the last six seasons.

Loáisiga has never been in question for what he can bring to the Yankees bullpen. The 29 year old made his MLB debut in 2018 and has been nails for the Yankees, when he’s available. That’s been the entire story surrounding Loáisiga.

Loáisiga’s best season came in 2021 when he was Aaron Boone’s go-to arm out of the pen. Posting a 2.17 ERA across 70.2 innings, he showed his full potential.

2024 was supposed to be a big year for Loáisiga. Fresh off of injury and having the entire offseason to recover, Loáisiga was slotted in to take over recently traded Michael King’s spot in the bullpen. Now just after 4.0 innings, not allowing a run, Loáisiga finds himself back on the IL.

This has obviously been a brutal run of events for the Yankees and Loáisiga. The hope is, he’ll be back in the prime of the season to finish what he started in 2024. The Yankees will certainly miss his presence out of the bullpen.
