The injury came as the shortstop was trying to beat out an infield single and collided with first baseman Kendrys Morales.
The Yankees will be without their starting shortstop for 10 days after Didi Gregorius left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays with a "pretty significant bruise" on his left heel, in the words of manager Aaron Boone.
While there are no broken bones, the contusion has still sent Didi to the DL due to the swelling. The 10-days are retroactive to Aug. 20, the team announced.
The Yankees have recalled infielder Luke Voit from the team's Triple-A affiliate in Pennsylvania in the meantime.
The injury was the result of a first-inning collision with Toronto first baseman Kendrys Morales while beating out an infield single. Gregorius took the field in the top of the second inning after receiving medical attention but was replaced by Ronald Torreyes before the top of the third.
Watch the collision below:
The 28-year-old has been with the Yankees since 2015. He is batting .270 with 22 home runs and 74 RBIs this season.
The Yankees beat the Blue Jays 10-2 and currently sit 9 1/2 games behind the Red Sox in the AL East.
