Yankees shortstop Eduardo Nunez bruised his right wrist Friday night when he hit by a pitch in the second inning of New York's game against Baltimore.
Nunez was hit by a pitch from Miguel Gonzalez and was checked out by Yankees trainers for several minutes before heading to first base. He went to his position for the third inning and attempted one warmup throw that barely reached first baseman Lyle Overbay. Nunez shook his head and signaled toward the Yankees bench as he walked off the field.
X-rays were negative. Jayson Nix took over at shortstop.
Nunez did not start two games against Detroit after being hit in the right biceps by a pitch on April 12. He has been filling in for Derek Jeter, who is rehabilitating a broken ankle.

They're the little team that believed. The pluck-filled Yankees, enjoying their underfunded, underdog status, are feeling pretty prime these days. Pretty pretty pretty prime. A bunch of knowitalls said this team was dead. But look: Riding tall at .500, with a two-game, rain-helped sweep in Swishertown. Three in a row, baby. Three in a row. Meanwhile, we won't have to worry...

It’s now officially been a full five years since the Indians...
