Don't know if anybody saw this last night, but Vidal Nuno left his start for Triple-A SWB in the 2nd inning with an apparent injury. He was cruising along with 4 strikeouts through 1.2 innings before throwing a pitch, calling the trainers out, and leaving the game without even throwing another pitch to test the injury. There hasn't been any update from the team or any writers on the nature of the injury yet. I checked Donnie Collins' Twitter and there was nothing, so if Donnie doesn't know nobody knows. The fact that Nuno called the training staff out and didn't even try to throw another pitch makes it seem like it could be serious. Hopefully it was just Nuno being cautious. The Yankees lost one piece of organizational rotation depth yesterday afternoon when Chien-Ming Wang opted out to sign with Toronto. They may have lost another last night if Nuno's injury turns out to be something that keeps him out for an extended period of time.
* UPDATE- Joe Girardi told reporters today that it was a groin injury that ended Nuno's night. No formal diagnosis yet, and Joe didn't rule out a DL trip. *Read More
