New York Yankees infielder Eduardo Nunez appeared to suffer a serious injury during Tuesday's contest against the Toronto Blue Jays, as he crumpled to the ground favoring his right knee. Nunez has been out since, and he's slated to undergo an MRI today to help determine the extent of the damage that's been done to his knee, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Manger Joe Girardi told reporters that Nunez was about "50-50" to play Wednesday, but he didn't enter the game. New York is hoping for good news on the infielder's status, as they'll used today's off-day to have him further evaluated. Girardi said he and general manager Brian Cashman debated calling up an infielder with Nunez and second baseman Robinson Cano recovering from injuries, but the team decided against it. Instead, New York used a non-traditional lineup Wednesday, giving Mark Reynolds his first start at second base. Like Cano, it's not clear when Nunez will rejoin the Yankees' lineup. Both players could be back in time for tomorrow's weekend opener against the Baltimore Orioles, or both could require extended absences and perhaps even stints on the disabled list. More should be known regarding Nunez today or tomorrow when the results of the MRI are revealed. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
