Yankees Infielder Nunez Scratched With Sore Hand

"Valuable utility infielder Eduardo Nunez won't pick up a bat until at least Saturday.

"We will continue to give him more days off,'' Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Nunez, who hasn't played since March 5 because of a bruised right hand and was scratched during batting practice for Tuesday night's 1-0 loss to the Red Sox at George M. Steinbrenner Field. "The tests all came back negative, but when you get hit there it's still sore. We might give him three whole days off, keep increasing it and see when we get him back.''

Nunez left a game against the Phillies on March 5 with a bruised right hand after getting hit by a pitch. X-rays that day were negative and a CAT scan taken days later didn't show a broken or fractured bone."
