Eduardo Nunez leaves game after being hit on wrist

Apr 12, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

New York Yankees' Nunez drops his bat after being hit by a pitch against the Baltimore Orioles during their MLB American League game in New York Reuters

Yankees shortstop Eduardo Nunez, filling in for the injured Derek Jeter, was hit on the right wrist by Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez. Nunez stayed in the game initially to run the bases, but was eventually lifted to have his wrist examined.

MLB.com’s Britt Ghiroli reports that x-rays on the wrist were negative, which is certainly good news for the Yankees.

Nunez was hitting .250 in 23 trips to the plate entering tonight’s game. If Nunez needs time off, Jayson Nix is behind him on the depth chart. Jeter could return some time in early May.

    Time for Yankee pitchers to pitch inside with tailing fastballs. I’m tired of reading about our guys gettting nailed every game on the wrist.Our pitchers have to protect our guys Throw it in the back ! Respect the game.

      Do you remember last year’s game when CC hit the O’s Markakis. He was lost for the rest of the year, causing them to barely make the playoffs and have a sputtering offense when they faced the Yanks in the ALDS? If Nunez has to sit out some time for an injury, it’s almost retribution.

    Is their anyway someone could hit Hal Steinbrenner in the head?

    The unfortunate part for Nunez is that before these 2 recent HBP’s/injuries Nunez was having a very good early part of the season.
