Update: X-rays negative after comebacker forces Garcia from game

By

Update (4:53pm): The Yankees have announced that Garcia’s x-rays came back negative. No word on how long he’ll be out, but I’m sure he’ll get a few days off just to make sure everything’s okay.

Update (2:24pm): Via Marc Carig, the team announced that Garcia has a right hand contusion and is being taken for precautionary x-rays. That was fast.

2:19pm: Freddy Garcia left this afternoon’s game against the Blue Jays after taking an Edwin Encarnacion line drive to his right (pitching) hand. He immediately walked off the mound with the trainer and headed to the clubhouse. He may only be penciled in as the sixth starter/swingman, but Sweaty Freddy is a pretty nice piece of pitching depth. We’ll update with more as it’s available.

    Didn’t take long for our pitching depth to come in handy.

      lol was that a pun? if so, then very nicely done.

      • Mike HC

        haha … Not intentional. Not nicely done at all.

  • CJ

    Can they just say “bruise”? Do they have to use “contusion”? What happened to bruise? I miss bruise. It’s easier to say and more fun to say than that other monstrosity.

      You’re cruisin for a contusion.

      • Nigel Bangs

        I lol’d.

    Edwin Encarnacion fucked up the Yankees universe today.

    everything works out. he will be shut down for a couple weeks, be behind everyone else, and by the time he is good and ready to go after some extended ST someone will have been innefective or gotten hurt. boom.

    Anyone watching the game have feedback on Banuelos? I’m at work, but his numbers look disappointing …

    • JohnnyC

      Just a bad day. Wouldn’t worry too much.

    Freddy hurt and Marchand sending Pineda to minors, Mitchell vs phelps for 5th starter. Sarcasm.

    • JohnnyC

      I see ESPN has had a wonderful influence on Marchand’s writing.

      If this were an actual battle, so far I would prefer Phelps for #5 over Garcia or Hughes.

  • Mike Myers

    I heard Phil paid off the hitter

    • Cesar “Stairs” Cabral

      *hides in corner*

    No mention of or post for Swisher leaving the game early with a groin issue? Sounds very minor, no tests scheduled, but still could’ve been mentioned.

      I stuffed it in the open thread with the rest of the camp notes. Doesn’t sound serious at all, if it was I would have posted it.
