Update: Nunez fine, taken out of game for defenseBy
4:12pm: After the game, Joe Girardi said he made the move for defense and that Nunez is fine. I don’t get it at all, but then again I don’t get a lot of Girardi’s moves.
3:02pm: Eduardo Nunez left this afternoon’s game in the sixth inning with what I have to assume is an injury. He drove a fly ball to deep center an inning prior and seemed to be fine. Derek Jeter took over at shortstop, meaning the Yankees lose the DH for the remainder of the game. I can’t imagine they put the Cap’n in for defense in a tie game. Jayson Nix is back in New York having an MRI on his hip flexor, so if Nunez is hurt they won’t have a backup middle infielder. Stay tuned for updates.
