The Colombian infielder was hit on the left hand by a 95 mph fastball from reliever Diego Castillo during the sixth inning on Tuesday night. Urshela remained in the game after he was checked by Yankees’ head athletic trainer Steve Donohue.
After playing defense, Urshela was pulled out of the game in the seventh inning, with DJ LeMahieu moving over to the hot corner and Luke Voit taking over at first base.
Urshela has been a key player for the club through an injury-marred season, hitting .316 /.356 /.535.
After a red-hot August, where he batted .385, with seven home runs and 18 RBIs, the 27-year-old was placed on the 10-day injured list at the end of the month with a left groin muscle injury, becoming the 31st different Yankee to land on the IL, a new major league record.cheap nfl jerseys china nike
