The New York Yankees entered Sunday looking for a pivotal series win over the rival Boston Red Sox. With a 4-2 lead and Gleyber Torres on base in the top of the fourth inning, Yankees outfielder Mike Tauchman took a Rick Porcello pitch to right field that squeaked by the Pesky Pole of Fenway Park to count as a two-run homer.
The high of hitting a home run ended quickly for Tauchman in the bottom half of the inning, however. When fielding a fly out the very next inning, Tauchman appeared to injure his lower leg, as he immediately limped as the ball hit the turf. The Sock Man was replaced by Cameron Maybin in left field.
We will keep you posted once the New York Yankees release an update on Mike Tauchman's status.
With their outfield depth growing thin entering October, and Cameron Maybin battling a lingering wrist issue, we may see...Clint Frazier?!
