Austin Romine leaves Spring Training game with hand injury

Injuries during Spring Training are not what you want. Unfortunately, the Yankees might have their second major injury in camp.

During the seventh inning of the Yankees exhibition game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Austin Romine was clipped in the hand by a wild pitch thrown by reliever Chad Green.

Romine was immediately taken out of the game and Kyle Higashioka replaced him.

There’s no word on Romine’s condition but as soon as there is, I’ll update this post.

UPDATE: Austin Romine’s x-ray on his hand came back negative. He’s considered day-to-day.

  1. I think everyone wants to see how Kyle Higashioka can do in the majors. As long as Romine doesn't suffer any major injuries, testing the depth a little isn't such a bad thing. If Romine has a broken hand that's not such a minor injury though.

    Chad Green was a former hockey, I see.
