 NEW YORK (AP) -Yankees first baseman Andy Phillips has a broken right wrist and will have surgery Tuesday, most likely sidelining him for the rest of the year.
Phillips was hit by a pitch during New York's 8-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. The club said he will be out four to six weeks.
``It feels like somebody hit me a with a hammer,'' said Phillips, who was wearing a splint in the clubhouse Monday.
Jason Giambi started at first in the opener of New York's pivotal series against Seattle. Wilson Betemit, Shelley Duncan and Doug Mientkiewicz also could play first with Phillips out. Mientkiewicz missed much of the season with a broken right wrist.
Devil Rays starter Jason Hammel hit Phillips with a pitch with one out in the fifth. Phillips shook his right arm as he staggered to first but stayed in the game and scored on Melky Cabrera's double.
``It's frustrating,'' Phillips said.
Wilson Betemit replaced Phillips in the sixth inning of Sunday's game. Phillips is batting .292 with two homers and 25 RBIs this season.
