Catcher Brian McCann, who has been out of the starting lineup for two days in a row, is ruled day to day with a hyperextended elbow. Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News was first to report it. Manager Joe Girardi doesn’t believe it is a serious issue, and thinks McCann will only be out for a few days. The 32 year old is batting .224 with 7 home runs, and has had his struggles alongside the rest of his teammates.
Austin Romine will most likely assume the starting catcher spot. Romine has earned his backup role this season, showing some promise.
