 TORONTO (AP) -New York Yankees outfielder Shelley Duncan left the team Tuesday and returned to New York, where he was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Wednesday.
Duncan has been bothered by lower abdominal discomfort for the past month, an injury that dates back to a hard slide he made in a game at Toronto on Aug. 7, when he collided with shortstop John McDonald while breaking up a double play.
The 27-year-old rookie, the son of St. Louis pitching coach Dave Duncan, has just one hit in his past 12 at-bats and has not homered since Aug. 15 against Baltimore.
A second-round pick in the 2001 draft, Duncan is batting .259 with six homers and 15 RBIs in 26 games since having his contract purchased from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on July 20.
