According to insider reports, it appears that fans of the New York Yankees will have to exercise a bit more patience before witnessing the return of their star player to the field. The team has been without the services of Gerrit Cole, one of their top performers, for the entire current season due to an elbow injury.

While Cole has been making notable progress recently and appears to be moving in a positive direction, it seems that his return to pitching won’t materialize until around “mid-June,” as indicated by Jon Heyman of the New York Post.

Heyman stated, “Gerrit Cole is scheduled to throw his first bullpen Saturday, with the new target for his return ‘mid-June.'”

While it’s encouraging to see Cole making strides, the news of his anticipated return being approximately six weeks away from major league action may come as a disappointment to fans. Despite New York managing to achieve success without Cole thus far, his comeback will undoubtedly provide a significant boost to the team.

As a leading force in baseball and a strong contender for the World Series, the Yankees’ prospects largely hinge on Cole’s ability to return to top form. The hope is that his rehabilitation progresses smoothly without any setbacks, allowing him to rejoin the pitching rotation soon.

Although Cole becomes eligible to be removed from the Injured List toward the latter part of May, it appears unlikely based on current information, barring any unexpected developments. Nevertheless, the Yankees will aim to maintain their momentum and continue their winning ways until Cole’s return.
