BOSTON (AP) — Yankees left fielder Mike Tauchman has been pulled from a game at Fenway Park with an apparent injury to his left leg.
Tauchman limped off after fielding a routine single hit by Boston’s Brock Holt in the fourth inning Sunday night. He stopped just before the ball reached him and was favoring his left leg.
Tauchman hit a two-run homer in the top of the inning to give New York a 6-2 lead. He was able to walk on his own back to the dugout and was replaced in left by Cameron Maybin.
The 28-year-old Tauchman has been a breakout performer for the banged up Yankees. He’s hitting .277 with 13 home runs this season.
