Keep track of the Yankees’ recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.

C Ben Rortvedt (right oblique strain)
Expected return: April
Rortvedt had imaging performed recently that showed no trace of the right oblique strain he sustained in February, according to manager Aaron Boone. Rortvedt is expected to begin increasing his hitting activity “significantly” on April 11. The catcher had been full-go defensively, throwing at distances of up to 120 feet while catching bullpen sessions and working on blocking. The Yankees briefly backed off on his offensive work because he experienced discomfort; Boone said that “we feel good about him ramping up again.” — Bryan Hoch (Last updated: April 10)

RHP Domingo Germán (right shoulder inflammation)
Expected return: Late May/Early June
Germán began experiencing discomfort in his pitching shoulder in January, delaying his throwing program. On March 18, the Yankees placed Germán on the 60-day injured list with right shoulder impingement syndrome. Boone said that Germán is doing well. — Bryan Hoch (Last updated: April 10)

LHP Zack Britton (Tommy John surgery)
Expected return: Late 2022
Britton underwent left elbow surgery on Sept. 8, a procedure performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. He began a flat-ground throwing program in February and is said to be doing well. The Yankees, who placed the lefty on the 60-day IL on March 13, are hopeful that Britton could return this August or September. — Bryan Hoch (Last updated: April 10)

RHP Stephen Ridings (right shoulder impingement)
Expected return:
TBD
Ridings was placed on the 60-day injured list on April 5. Ridings had said on March 31 that he could be cleared to begin playing catch in a few days. — Bryan Hoch (Last updated: April 5)
