Prado out of lineup with “mild” hamstring strain
Martin Prado has a “mild, mild strain” of his left hamstring, according to manager Joe Girardi, and is expected to be out of the Yankees’ lineup for the rest of the series against the Red Sox.
“We’ll see tomorrow, but right now he’s down,” Girardi said. “Our hope is it won’t be too long. We’ll have to see.”
Girardi said that Prado was completely shut down on Wednesday and is receiving treatment. Prado was injured in Tuesday’s 9-4 loss to Boston and had an MRI on the hamstring after the game.
“He’s been swinging really well. It’s not what you want,” Girardi said. “Hopefully it’s just a day or two here and we can get him back, but we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Stephen Drew got the start at second base on Wednesday.
