Benindi’s hamate fracture, requiring surgery
After the Yankees’ 2-1 win over the Yankees , manager Aaron Boone said Benin Tendi had been diagnosed with a fractured hamate hook in his right hand and required surgery for the Rays at the Tropicana Stadium on Sunday. The Yankees hope to have a clearer timeline for Benin Tendi’s return soon.
“When I experienced this before, it was about a few weeks,” Benin Tendi said. “We’ll see what happens. Obviously, I want to get back there in time for the second half of the season and then, hopefully, the playoffs. It’s too early to say.”
Boone also told him in 2001 had experience with the surgery and said he did not expect it to be the case for Benin Tendi at the end of the season.
“everyone^s different. Every procedure heals a little differently,” Boone said. “[But] no, I think the possibility of his return is still in play. You never know how the surgery and treatment goes.”
