Yankees star leaves game with injury scare: 'See what we got'
Giancarlo Stanton fouled multiple balls off his foot and ankle in the sixth inning of a 5-2 win over the Twins..
and while he stayed in the game to finish the at-bat, Aaron Hicks pinch hit for him in the eighth inning.
X-rays were negative, according to Aaron Boone, but the manager was noncommittal about Stanton being back in the lineup Tuesday.
Boone and a trainer paid a visit to Stanton during the sixth-inning at-bat after he fouled another ball out of play and came up hobbling.
He remained in the game and grounded out.
Stanton is less than two weeks removed from missing 28 games with left Achilles tendinitis, but Boone said Monday’s issues had nothing to do with that.
Before exiting the game, Stanton went 0-for-3 with three groundouts.
The first two were missiles at 104.3 mph and 108.9 mph, but hit right at infielders.
