Yankees Rotation Race Muddled After Garcia Hurts Hand

"The immediate swelling was a strong indication something was wrong with Yankees pitcher Freddy Garcia's right hand. The amount of time it took him to leave Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Blue Jays was another.

"If you walk away, forget it,'' catcher Francisco Cervelli said. "That guy loves to throw no matter what happens.''

Garcia was nearing the end of another superb outing when his right hand got in the way of a Edwin Encarnacion grounder and it hit him below the index finger knuckle. The ball popped up in the air and almost before the ball landed, the veteran right-hander was walking off the mound."
