New York Yankees right-hander Dellin Betances will have an MRI exam on his throwing shoulder after he struggled in a simulated game on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

“Didn’t go great,” manager Aaron Boone told the New York Times.

In mid-March, general manager Brian Cashman said an MRI revealed a right shoulder impingement after the club was worried about Betances’ velocity this spring. It wasn’t considered a serious injury at the time, and the pitcher said, “I’m not concerned at all.”

Betances, 31, is a four-time All-Star who went 4-6 with a 2.70 ERA in 66 appearances last season, mostly in a set-up role for the Yankees.

He is among a dozen Yankees on the injured list. The latest addition was catcher Gary Sanchez, who went on the 10-day injured list on Friday with a left calf strain.
