New York Yankees fans are holding their breath.

After a 56-minute rain delay on Thursday night vs. the Minnesota Twins, outfielder Juan Soto was nowhere to be found in right field or the dugout.

Shortly after, the Yankees announced that Soto left the game with left forearm discomfort.


Alex Verdugo took over in left field, Aaron Judge moved to right field, and Trent Grisham stayed in center field.

After the game, manager Aaron Boone told reporters that Soto’s forearm had been bothering him for the last week, and during the rain delay, he was sore. Dr. Christopher Ahmad advised him not to push it. He will undergo imaging on Friday.

Soto also spoke to reporters and said his arm doesn’t hurt when he is throwing or hitting.
