Nick Swisher out of Yankees lineup with hamstring injury

2 Comments

Nick Swisher, who left yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury, is out of the Yankees’ lineup for tonight’s matchup with the Orioles.

In his place the Yankees are starting utility infielder Eduardo Nunez in left field, with Raul Ibanez shifting from left field to right field.

Nunez has been playing professional baseball since 2006 and has a grand total of one career inning as a left fielder, while Ibanez’s best position defensively is designated hitter.

Good luck, Hiroki Kuroda!

Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.

Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.

The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.

Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
