Eduardo Nunez will miss some time with a thumb injury (Photo: Ed Zurga/Getty Images)

I had spent some time attempting to figure out why it was that Eduardo Nunez had left last night’s game against the Toledo Mud Hens. Thanks to Yankees GM Brian Cashman, I now have my answer: Nunez was forced from last night’s game with a “problem at the base of the [right] thumb.” Cashman said he believes that the injury will keep Nunez out “three or four days.”

Nunez has struggled since his demotion, going 3-for-13 with a pair of errors in three games. There is no set timetable for when he may be back with the Yankees.
