Josh Donaldson walks on COVID IL after Tim Anderson controversy

Josh Donaldson is going on the COVID IL, Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters Monday.

It comes after a controversial weekend in which he nicknamed White Sox infielder Tim Anderson “Jackie,” which ultimately caused a cloud of dust between the two teams. Anderson and many others believed the comments were racially charged.

DJ LeMahieu also wasn’t in the lineup against the Orioles Monday night, though Boone said it was just a planned day off. Miguel Andujar was called up by Triple-A to take Donaldson’s spot on the list.

It was previously reported that all Yankees players were vaccinated.
