NEW YORK (AP) -Yankees first baseman Andy Phillips wasn't in the lineup against Seattle on Monday and could be out for a while because of an injured wrist.
Phillips was hit by a pitch during New York's 8-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. The team said he had a bruised right wrist, and Phillips said Monday tests revealed a ``fracture in there.'' His wrist is in a splint and he's scheduled to see a hand specialist.
``It feels like somebody hit me a with a hammer,'' Phillips said.
Jason Giambi was in the lineup at first for New York.
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.
