New Yankee Harrison Badar eyeing September return

Harrison Bader has been frustrated over not be able to play yet for the Yankees, fully understanding the oddity of being traded to a contending team while rehabbing from a foot injury.

The Gold Glove-winning center fielder, who was acquired in a surprising trade-deadline deal from the Cardinals for pitcher Jordan Montgomery, is hoping to be ready by early September after he recovers a bout with plantar fasciitis.

“It’s very difficult. It’s definitely been a challenge,” Bader said before the Yankees’ 3-1 loss to the Rays on Tuesday night in The Bronx. ”You know, walking in here in a boot, I’m sure everybody was like, ‘We just traded for this guy in a boot? Are you serious?’
