Found September 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees fear reserve catcher Austin Romine suffered a concussion during last night's contest against the Baltimore Orioles. Romine initially passed the concussion tests the team administered, but he was ultimately lifted from the game after feeling nauseous behind the plate, according to Bryan Hoch of Romine entered the game in the seventh to replace catcher Chris Stewart, who was pinch-hit for. He took a foul ball off the bat of Adam Jones to the face mask. After passing concussion tests, Romine was lifted after complaining of nausea, according to manager Joe Girardi. "He's got probably a concussion. He's a little dizzy," Girardi said. "He said he was fine and he passed all the tests when we first went out there, and then after the one hitter, he got nauseous, so we just took him out." It's not clear how much time Romine will be required to miss as a result of the injury, as concussions can require a wide range of down time. It's not a good sign that he felt nauseous after returning to the game, and if he is diagnosed with a concussion he'll have to pass MLB's slate of tests before rejoining the Yankees' lineup. In the meantime, J.R. Murphy, who replaced Romine behind the plate, will serve as Stewart's primary backup. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
