The New York Yankees could soon get some reinforcements back for the stretch run of the regular season and the playoffs.
The 31-year-old righty threw to live batters on Tuesday and could soon be in line for a rehab stint.
Betances has missed the entire 2019 season with a shoulder impingement. He suffered a LAT strain in rehab earlier this year, leading to a more extensive absence.
A return to action would be absolutely huge for the first-place Yankees. Betances has pitched to a combined 2.22 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over the past five seasons, earning four All-Star appearances in the process.
