Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates was Badr’s first major league game since the New York Yankees acquired him from the St. Louis Cardinals during the August 2 trading deadline.

“I am excited to join any big stadium,” Bader said. “I am excited to wear any major league uniform and I am excited to go there and compete at the main level at all times.” The Yankees club before the start of a series of two games against the Buccaneers. “There’s definitely a special history here for me, obviously, I was in the stands when I was younger. But, at the end of the day, we have to be effective tonight. I have a baseball game to win.” I’m just going to focus on taking clean routes to the ball and going out there and hitting my first player.”

However, while Badr stated that his focus was on the field of play, he acknowledged that it would be a special night for him and his family.

“With all due respect to the Yankees fans, I think it’s great for them. I think it’s great that the fans here have a New York native. So many fans cheering for us during the games, I was when I was when Bader, who was hitting .256 by five runs,” said Bader. , 21 RBIs and 15 base stolen by the time my plantar fasciitis flared up.” “I just want to be the best version of myself for them. I think [Derek] Jeter said it best when he said that fans frown because they want to cheer. So I’m going out there and doing my best to give them something to be happy about. Hopefully this will be a win after nine runs.”

When the Yankees first acquired Badr, general manager Brian Cashman said he felt it was a worthwhile deal to make, even though the quarterback was not expected to play until the end of the season. Yankees Trade Jordan Montgomery Louis was seen as someone who largely favors cards, as the left-handed starter went 5-2 with a 2.35 ERA with the RedBirds, after starting the season 3-3 with a 3.69 ERA in striped streaks.

Cashman called Bader “one of the game’s elite central defenders” and manager Aaron Boone said he expected him to make an immediate impact on the field.

“I know he’s been chomping for a while,” Boone said. “I feel like his rehab over the past week has gone really well, he’s been able to kick some bats, and he feels like he’s moving really well.” “He’s been really encouraged over the last couple of weeks about where he’s been and how he kind of felt over that hump. So I just want him to come out and play his game. And that’s to be an athlete in the middle of the field. He’s been looking forward to this day.”

Montas, who struggled with right shoulder issues earlier in the season while with the Oakland Athletics, has been mostly frustrated since the Yankees caught him before the trade deadline, going 1-3 with a 6.35 ERA in eight times before landing in IL . Montas received a cortisone shot in the shoulder while with A, and received another one, in the same shoulder area, on Monday.

Boone said Montas will be shut out completely from throwing for 10 days or so, and he wasn’t sure if he would be able to return to rotation this season.

“It can be difficult to remodel the pitch to a point, but I think it is definitely possible for him to play with us [before the end of the regular season]Boone said. Hopefully this next week or 10 days goes well and we can start ramping it up, but we have to get there… We’ll just see how the recovery goes over the next week or 10 days. And then we’ll see where we are from a calendar standpoint, how many presentations we can get to, those kinds of things.”

Montas’ loss was mitigated by the fact that Louis Severino Activation from the injured list is scheduled to start the second game of the inter-series series against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Severino was placed in IL 14 July with a right low-grade strain and, against his wishes, was placed in 60 days IL 1 August. Severino, who came into the season appearing in just seven games (three starts) in his previous three seasons, was 5-3 with a 3.45 ERA in 16 games before landing on IL.

“I feel so good,” Severino said. “In fact, better than before. It’s all… the speed… and most importantly how I feel the next day. I actually feel better than I ever imagined.” He expected to play 65 pitches against the Buccaneers and build as many as 100 by the end of the season. “I’ve been resting for 60 days, so, yeah, of course, I’m new now. I think now is the best time for me to come back because. Montas, I don’t know if he’s going to be out for a long time or a short time, but it was a great piece for me.” Our “.
