Losing two starters in a span of four hours? Yeah, sounds like Yankees baseball to me.


After an epic win Friday night against Boston, the Yanks are just 3.5 games back of the lead in the AL East, and with two games left against the Red Sox in New York, they can tighten things up with a few more wins. 


Unfortunately, it sounds like things aren't looking as bright for the rest of the weekend. Jordan Montgomery, who was scheduled to start in tomorrow's game for the Yanks, was struck in the head by a ball during batting practice today. 

Line drive to the head while signing autographs. That's a new low.


Montgomery reportedly stayed on the bench for a few minutes before eventually going into the clubhouse for further evaluation. 

​​Stay tuned for more updates as this story develops. A concussion would be fairly brutal for the Yanks, who've already tabbed Montgomery as an emergency starter for Sunday.


The other options are...fairly bleak.


UPDATE: Montgomery should be OK to pitch Sunday, per reports.


Exhale, for now.
