Update: Zoilo Almonte headed to DL with left ankle sprainBy
10:37pm: Almonte is headed to the DL, Joe Girardi confirmed after the game. Donnie Collins says both Melky Mesa and Thomas Neal are leaving Triple-A Scranton and will meet the team in Boston. Not sure why both guys are going though.
9:15pm: Almonte has a left ankle sprain, the team announced. X-rays were negative. No idea if this is a DL thing, but the Yankees are running out of warm bodies if it is.
8:56pm: Zoilo Almonte left tonight’s game in the fifth inning with an apparent leg injury. He was seen limping after running out a double play ground ball in the second, though he remained in the game for another few innings before leaving. With Brett Gardner ejected, the Yankees have Alberto Gonzalez and Brent Lillibridge in the outfield corners.
