Update: Nix out 10-14 days with hip flexor strainBy
Sunday: Nix will be out 10-14 days with a Grade I strain of the left hip flexor. Sounds like the only way we’ll see him again this year is if the Yankees manage to advance to the ALCS.
Saturday: Utility man Jayson Nix is heading back to New York for an MRI on his left hip flexor. No idea how long it’s been bothering him, but Eduardo Nunez will take over as the backup middle infielder by default. Casey McGehee and Eric Chavez will help out on the corners. If Nix will be out a while, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Yankees recalled Corban Joseph, who is already on the 40-man roster, just to have the extra bench help the rest of the way.
