New York Yankees relief pitcher Tommy Kahnle is dealing with biceps tendinitis that he thinks will take about a month to clear up, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Kahnle signed a two-year, $11.5 million contract with the Yankees this offseason, after spending 2021 and 2022 with the Los Angeles Dodgers
Yankees manager Aaron Boone is hopeful that Kahnle could still be ready for the start of the regular season.
The signing is a return to the Yankees for Kahnle. He was with the team from 2017 through 2020.
In the 2018 season, Kahnle suffered from similar biceps tendinitis that he attempted to pitch through. He returned to the Yankees bullpen in 2019.
Kahnle suffered an injury that required him getting Tommy John surgery during the 2020 season that was shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
