LeMahieu has been dealing with a "hip/groin" issue for the "last couple weeks."
"Last night [it] was kind of holding him back a little bit. He’s pretty beat up after last night’s game. Hopefully something that the day will help him out and be back in there," Boone said.
"Nestor [Cortes]… more of a fly ball guy, wanting to have Wade’s flexibility off the bench, I just decided to go that way," Boone explained.
Boone said Loaisiga's bullpen session on Friday went "well," and he will throw another one on Sunday. The Yanks will then determine next steps, but he did not rule out the possibility of him returning for the series in Toronto.
"If everything goes well with that pen tomorrow, he could potentially be active then for the Blue Jays series," said Boone.
The Yankees will look to tie the Red Sox in the AL Wild Card race at 4:10 p.m. at Fenway Park.
