Tonight, the Yankees had a pretty awesome come-from-behind victory in Texas, but as has been the story with 2013, they could not escape the day without an injury of some kind.
Luis Cruz likely heading to Yankees DL with knee injury— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) July 24, 2013
Luis Cruz said the medical staff told him he damaged his MCL. Wearing a bulky brace. Expects to go on the DL.— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) July 24, 2013
Cruz apparently hurt his knee last night, and he will head back to New York for an MRI.
The Yankees have not yet announced who they will add to the roster to replace Cruz, but it seems likely that David Adams will be recalled after his demotion a few weeks ago. He's hit well in Scranton in his past 10 games entering today at .286/.405/.514, so perhaps he can fully escape the slump that ruined his rookie season in June. He's the only other healthy infielder on the 40-man roster, so if the Yankees wanted to add someone else like Alberto Gonzalez or Ronnier Mustelier, they would have to make a 40-man move.
The Humbler strikes again.
