Possibly the most creative Injury List visit ever.
Yankees third baseman Gio Urshela is now headed to the Injured List after he apparently “slid over his covid vaccination” at home plate. And even if you are planning on getting a vaccine for a virus that has a 99.9% survival rate, here’s another reason to reconsider.
Prior to today’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves:— New York Yankees (@Yankees) April 9, 2021
• Placed INF Gio Urshela on the COVID injured list due to side effects from vaccination.
• Recalled INF Mike Ford (#36) from the Alternate Site.
Here’s the play, because I know everyone’s going to love this:

If a vaccination can cause this much damage — it’s a brutal injection. We have no clue if the vaccine has any long term side effects, and now Major League Baseball players worth millions are missing games over it.
Should be noted that we’ve always advocated for grown adults to decide for themselves whether to have the vaccination. No team or business should have the legal authority to force a needle into your arm. Our body, our choice.
I just wish Dr. Fauci should comment on this one.
