BOSTON (AP) -Yankees first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz will be placed on the 15-day disabled list before the game Sunday, a day after colliding with Boston's Mike Lowell on an errant throw by shortstop Derek Jeter.
Mientkiewicz was taken from the field on a cart after banging his head on Lowell's hip while trying to one-hop Jeter's throw in the seventh inning.
Mientkiewicz was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where tests Saturday night revealed a mild concussion, cervical sprain and a fractured bone in his right wrist. He spent the night in the hospital for observation.
The play happened with the score tied at 5 in the seventh. The Red Sox loaded the bases with nobody out against Scott Proctor before Lowell hit a grounder to second. Robinson Cano flipped to second for the force, but Jeter spun around and threw an 85-footer that Mientkiewicz tried to backhand on the outfield side of the bag.
As Mientkiewicz's momentum pulled him into the baseline, Lowell ran through the base and sent Mientkiewicz sprawling. The ball bounced off his glove and into foul territory as Manny Ramirez scampered home with the second - and go-ahead - run.
The Red Sox won 11-6.
