Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Skipper downplays injury
Manager Aaron Boone described Tauchman's (shin) removal from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies as precautionary, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.Tauchman exited the contest in the bottom of the third after having previously fouled a ball of his shin/calf area in his at-bat in the top of of the second. Boone said that Tauchman won't be sent in for any further tests, so the Yankees are seemingly hopeful that the outfielder will be good to go for Opening Day simply by addressing his leg with ice treatment over the next few days.
Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Makes Opening Day roster
Tauchman will begin the regular season in the majors, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.Tauchman has slashed .259/.394/.593 with three home runs, four RBI and two stolen bases in 11 spring games this year and was rewarded with a spot on the Opening Day roster. He'll serve as a depth option in the outfield and could also see some playing time at first base behind Jay Bruce since Luke Voit (knee) is out to begin the regular season.
