Mark Reynolds is still feeling a bit woozy

Mark Reynolds, who was hit in the head with a 95 mph fastball by Nationals right-hander Collin Balester on Tuesday, was incredibly back in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s game. He wasn’t able make it through the whole game, however.

During a pitching change in the seventh inning, teammate Stephen Drew noticed that Reynolds was looking “glazed over,” according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.

“I looked at him and was like, ‘What in the world? Get out of here,’ ” Drew said. “You don’t play around with that stuff.”

Once it was brought to the attention of Diamondbacks interim manager Kirk Gibson, he decided to remove Reynolds from the game, telling reporters, “it was obvious something was going on.”

Assistant general manager Peter Woodfork said that Reynolds was evaluated by a team doctor and is considered day-to-day. Hopefully it’s nothing more serious than that.

MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that ESPN broadcaster Aaron Boone interviewed for the Yankees’ manager job today. No word as to whether he hit a big home run.

Boone, an ESPN analyst, obviously has some history with the Yankees, but he has no coaching experience at any level. Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote earlier this week of Boone that the Yankees “are intrigued if his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience.” I’d say the answer to that question, whenever asked and in whatever context, is always “no,” but I suppose there’s a first time for everything.

So far the Yankees have interviewed Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge and Hensley Meulens. Yesterday Brian Cashman said there was no rush to fill the job, and that the Winter Meetings are not a deadline for the team in doing so.
