Luis Cruz likely headed to DL with knee injuryBy
Infielder Luis Cruz is likely headed to the DL with a knee injury, Joe Girardi said after tonight’s game. He’ll head to New York for an MRI; the medical staff has initially called it an MCL injury. I assume he hurt himself making that sliding catch in shallow right field near the foul line on Monday. Alberto Gonzalez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A just today, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he was called right back up to serve as the backup infielder. The Yankees do have an open 40-man roster spot.
