The New York Yankees can’t seem to catch a break.

After a series of devastating losses against the Toronto Blue Jays, Yankees pitcher Jameson Taillon has to be placed on the injured list, while Zack Britton is likely out for the rest of the season.

Taillon suffered a partial tendon tear in his right ankle, and Britton had to undergo Tommy John surgery.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone explained that Taillon felt a slight discomfort on his ankle on Monday during a series versus Toronto. The medical team then gave a platelet-rich plasma injection, and the 29-year-old has been on the watchlist since then.

“It sounds worse than it is, but his body is going to tell us what he’s able to handle,” Boone told reporters.

Britton, on the other hand, underwent Tommy John surgery on Thursday, in addition to having a bone chip removed from his left elbow.

“They did a reconstruction and a repair,” Boone said. “He’s still out in L.A. He’ll actually see Dr. [Neal] ElAttrache again in another week or so … to kind of get more of an updated timeline.”

The Yankees will start their series against the New York Mets on September 10.
