Yankees' Aaron Judge reveals MRI results after injury scare

According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, Yankees ace Gerrit Cole will visit sports surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles for at least one to two months to treat his elbow ailment.

After Gerrit Cole's throwing elbow MRI this week, ElAttrache reviewed his preliminary film. 

Despite no ulnar collateral ligament tears, ElAttrache proposed an in-person visit, according to Heyman.

Cole will be gone for a “extended period,” but Heyman hopes he'll return to the Yankees' rotation in May or June.

Cole would not start on Opening Day against the Houston Astros, but the Yankees hoped he would return shortly with rest. 

ElAttrache's suggestion for further testing raises concerns as Cole had been reaching his regular pace and command in spring, but was not recovering as expected, prompting an MRI.

Yankees fans are relieved that Cole's MRI suggests not having Tommy John surgery.

 It would be devastating to the Yankees if he missed all of 2024. ElAttrache may reconsider, but there is hope he will return this season.
