SO SAD: He might not survive it, Yankee’s lost another major player to unfamiliar critical injury.

New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole is set to begin his injury rehab assignment Tuesday in Somerset.

One of the final steps before returns to the team, the Yankees and their ace have been patiently waiting for Cole to make his comeback after he started the season on the 60-day injured list due to right elbow nerve inflammation.

The reigning Cy Young Award winner is set to start Tuesday night’s game for Double-A Somerset as they host the Hartford Yard Goats.

How many rehab starts Cole will need isn’t clear. It could be as few as two if his recovery is going well enough. He may need a few more.

With that said, Cole didn’t want to rule out a return during the month of June, and his rehab has been going very well up to this point.

The Yankees starting rotation has been one of the pleasant surprises across MLB to begin the season. The unit has the best ERA (2.78) in the American League and the second-best in MLB behind the Philadelphia Phillies (2.71).

Still, the return of Cole to the best team in the American League cannot come soon enough.
