The New York Yankees provided a positive update on Gerrit Cole’s health status, indicating that it may still be some time before he returns to pitching. Cole, the recipient of the 2023 American League Cy Young Award, has been sidelined this season due to elbow nerve inflammation, preventing him from taking the mound.

Despite the Yankees’ strong start to the season, they undoubtedly feel the absence of their ace pitcher. Manager Aaron Boone revealed that Cole recently had a “heavy day” of throwing, though there is uncertainty regarding when he will resume pitching from a mound. While it’s encouraging that Cole is gradually increasing his throwing activity, his return timeline remains unclear.
