Romine homered, a solo shot, in a 2-for-5 game Tuesday against the White Sox. This marks Romine's first home run in over a month. The backup continues to show a fine power stroke, now with three home runs and seven doubles in just 33 games, but he won't find significant playing time unless Brian McCann is out for an extended period.
Romine (thumb) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Romine missed the last two games after nursing a minor thumb injury, but it appears he's past the issue. He'll give Brian McCann a day off behind the plate and bat seventh against the left-handed David Huff.
Romine (thumb) is not in the lineup Monday against the Angels, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Romine departed Saturday's game with a thumb injury and will now be withheld from the lineup for a second straight day, though X-rays over the weekend cleared Romine of any serious injury. The Yankees will again go with Brian McCann behind the plate Monday.
Romine said x-rays on his thumb were negative, according to Erik Boland of Newsday. Romine said the thumb is sore but he expects to be available Sunday.
Romine left Saturday's game with an apparent wrist injury, according to David Lennon on Newsday. The injury occurred while Romine was warming up Aroldis Chapman before the start of the ninth inning. One of Chapman's warmup throws hit Romine in the wrist ares above the glove. He was replaced by Brian McCann.
