The Yankees initially believed Curtis would be rehabbing for about a month after suffering a shoulder subluxation during spring training. At the time Curtis said he wanted to avoid surgery “at all costs.”
He hurt himself making a diving catch on March 6. Although he no longer seemed to be favoring the shoulder in the clubhouse, Curtis went for another exam while the Yankees were in Boston and the decision was made that he would need surgery.
It’s unclear at this time how much longer Curtis will be out.
