ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees right-fielder Xavier Nady will be put on the disabled list with a right elbow injury and could be sidelined for an extended period.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that the initial report from an MRI exam on Nady's elbow "is not good."
Nady felt a sharp pain while making a throw in the seventh inning of Tuesday night's 7-2 win over Tampa Bay. He had elbow ligament replacement surgery on Sept. 29, 2001.
Also, Girardi said it's possible that injured third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who had right hip surgery just over five weeks ago, could start taking batting practice by this weekend. A-Rod is expected to rejoin the team by May 15.
