Aaron Boone says surgery ‘is a possibility’ for Zack Britton

Aaron Boone said pregame Tuesday that surgery “is a possibility” for Yankees reliever Zack Britton.

“He’s still kind of gathering opinions. … It’s a possibility,” Boone said. “I don’t know what [surgery] exactly, I just know that it is possible some kind of surgery could be in play.”

Britton was placed on the 10-day IL earlier this week with an elbow sprain that may be more serious than initially thought.

The lefty has had a rocky 2021 season thus far when he’s gotten to the mound. In 22 appearances, Britton is 0-1 with a 5.89 ERA and 16 strikeouts over 18.1 innings of work.
