Yankees’ Eduardo Nunez Day-to-Day With Sprained Knee, Team Says
New York Yankees infielder Eduardo Nunez is “day-to-day” as he recovers from a sprained knee when he caught his cleat in a seam on artificial turf at the Toronto Blue Jays’ ballpark.
Nunez’s scan on his knee yesterday was negative, the Major League Baseball team said.
Nunez, 26, twisted his right knee in the eighth inning of the Yankees’ 7-1 win over the Blue Jays on Aug. 27. He had replaced second baseman Robinson Cano, who left the game in the first inning after being hit in the left hand by a fastball.
The Yankees, who were idle last night, begin a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles tonight at Yankee Stadium.
