Nunez day-to-day after MRI comes back clean


The MRI on Eduardo Nunez‘s right knee came back clean, the Yankees announced. He is day-to-day. Nunez hurt himself on Tuesday when he caught a spike on the Rogers Center turf and fell to the infield. It would have been the most 2013 Yankees injury ever. Nunez worked out prior to yesterday’s game but had to sit out because he was unable to run at 100%. With Jayson Nix done for the year and Derek Jeter still a relative unknown following a third leg injury, losing Nunez would have been a pretty big blow. The team doesn’t have much infield depth.

    Thank God. We can all breathe a sign of relief now and get a good night’s sleep. If this team is to make any kind of run it’ll need a healthy Nuney. We saw what can happen yesterday without him.

  2. Defensive Indifference says:

    That dude is made of sugar. (Jeter has three legs?)

  3. Hearn says:

    As we used to say in Brooklyn, it’s time for Nunez to “check the shorts”

  4. Algernon Blackwood says:

    They should trade Nunez this offseason if he has any value at all. Unless he finds panties that fit better he’ll never be an everyday player.

  5. Deathstroke Heathcott says:

    I assume the third leg injury is from overuse?

  6. Jared says:

    What do we mean no infield depth? A-Rod is an accomplished SS from 2003 and Soriano was an infield regular less than a decade ago.

    I never want to see these guys in pinstripes again

    Is nunez french?

    Since Hal wants to get to 189 million payroll next year,I was wondering how much more payroll was incurred by using 50 or more players in a season.Granted the Brignac’s of the world don’t cost much for a few weeks.but multiply that by 15 to 20 bums,and that had to escalate the payroll.That will probably happen next year too.

    but how are his wisdom teeth?
