Update: Eduardo Nunez day-to-day with left ribcage irritation

Game 30: End of the Homestand
Sunday Night Open Thread

4:34pm: The MRI came back negative and Nunez is day-to-day with what they’re calling “irritation.” Joe Girardi said he might not be ready in time to play on Tuesday, which is a problem because that means they’ll be short a position player in an NL park.

3:16pm: Nunez left the game with tightness in his left ribcage, the team announced. He will have an MRI.

2:41pm: Eduardo Nunez was removed from today’s game for an unknown reason in the fifth inning. He was on deck when the bottom of the fourth inning ended, and the cameras showed him standing in the on-deck circle and chatting with Joe Girardi. Chris Nelson took over at third and Jayson Nix shifted over to short. Stay tuned for updates.

    Hope it’s not too serious!

  • FLYER7

    Did not appear injured? Traded?

  • trr

    Christ, now what?

  • trr

    Traded? Who the hell who want him?

    • trr

      Can’t even type I’m so upset!

  • Pat

    trade?

    Dam, it’s Nuney’s ribs!

  • GoYankees2013

    Tightness in his left rib cage .. Going for an MRI

    • GoYankees2013

      That’s gonna suck if he needs to go on the DL….

      • brian

        agreed and the killer is once jeter missed opening day i targeted this EXACT moment (well, may 7th, tuesdays game) as his return date

        Man would that have worked out perfect, oh well

        You’re telling me! I wanted to go to Colorado!

  • brian

    nunez seemingly gets dinged up a lot… i really have no reason to play he could play 155 games a season, especially if 150 of them are at shortstop

  • Midland TX

    Yanks are cleaning up in all voting categories for All-Star DL Team.

  • brian

    actually just said the summary…. he ASKED to come out… disaster… either it’s somewhat serious and he’s DL headed or he’s a giant wuss

    • Marie Pinciotto

      A BIG WUSS!

  • Gil Velazquez

    The injuries will continue until I am in the game.

  • Eddard

    If he goes on the DL this might be the straw that broke the camels back. They can ill afford to lose Nuney right when they’re heading on the road and to an NL park. They’ll lose Hafner’s bat in Colorado and now they may lose Nuney’s glove as well.

    • Preston

      I think Chris Nelson for a week or so will be just fine.

      • trr

        I’d say you’re in the minority with that

    • Robinson Tilapia

      I mean, where can you find a defensively-suspect shortstop who hits around the Mendoza line?!?!

      • WhittakerWalt

        Don’t trample on Eddard when he’s down. I hope someone has him on suicide watch for the next week or so.

  • stuart a

    offense already running on fumes.

    nix with a nice game today… 4 horrible at bats….

    • trr

      No question about it, his approach and the results were brutal today

    • Get Phelps Up

      If only ARod was healthy…

    • Robinson Tilapia

    • WhittakerWalt

      It could be that Nix just isn’t very good.

  • Now Batting

    Mustellier is playing two games today…

  • Joe G.

    Guys are just going to have to step up, and that’s what they’ve been doing, and I know Nellie and Nixie can do it if Nunie isn’t a player for me, and that’s the bottom line.

  • FLYER7

    Im the one who had him traded…obvi wouldnt be the major piece perhaps a throw in and wishful thinking on my part. if it looks like lost time than DL him rather than playing with 24…still question why we have 12 pitchers when we are so thin on the bench.
