Yankees, Mets can juggle lineups for unvaccinated absences

Kyrie Irving could be having company soon.

It was revealed Tuesday that any Yankees or Mets player who has not received a COVID-19 vaccine will be banned from playing in New York Cityper ordinance that has sidelined the unvaccinated Brooklyn Nets star in the counties this season (although Irving is still available to score 41 points in one half and a franchise record 60 total points in a game on the road).

With Opening Day (April 7) a little over three weeks away, it’s possible the city will crush the mandate before teams return to New York, but both title contenders could be without key players if the rule stands. Last season, the Mets were one of six teams not to meet the 85 percent immunization mark for Tier 1 personnel, allowing for relaxed COVID-19 protocols. The Yankees made the 85 percent mark despite the fact that key roster members are known not to have received the vaccine.

Aaron Judge made it easy to guess his status. When Judge was asked yesterday if he received the shot – which missed nine games in the COVID IL last season – quickly dodged the answer the simple question, as Irving did months ago. It wasn’t long before Irving’s absence from the games answered the question for him. The judge faces the same fate. Yankees, Mets can juggle lineups for unvaccinated absences
