The New York Yankees may now be out of options at catcher.  With Francisco Cervelii out with a fractured hand, the team was leaning on Chris Stewart.  Unfortunately, Stewart left last night's game with a strained groin.  To make matters worse for the Yankees, who seemed to be healing up finally, Andy Pettitte had to leave his start with a left trapezius muscle injury. According to Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York, Pettitte said after the game his trapezius wasn't tight anymore.  This is good news and indicative of what was likely a precautionary move to take Pettitte out of the game.  However, Pettitte wasn't sure if he'd need to miss his next start.  Stewart's injury may be a little more serious.  He will be sent for an MRI before any decision on his status are made. "When he went around the base and stopped, he felt something," Girardi said. "He said it didn't pop and he said he was OK, and when we saw him run, it continued to hurt, and we said, 'Well, we got to get you out.'" Stewart suffered the injury while running the bases in the seventh inning.  He tried to stay in the game, but the pain persisted.  If he lands on the DL, the Yankees will be down to Austin Romine.  They will have to call someone up if Stewart lands on the DL.  They may have to even if Stewart has to miss a couple games.  The team can't carry just one healthy catcher. As for Pettitte, he's a competitor, so if he can pitch, he'll make his next start.  However, the Yankees have suffered through so many injuries this season, it would not be surprising to see them have Pettitte skip his next start as a precaution.
