Quite a day for Chris Dickerson.
In his first game with the Yankees, Dickerson went 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI, then he limped off the field with a left hamstring injury.
So far, the Yankees medical team says it’s cramping and spasms. That’s all they can diagnose at this point. Dickerson is not scheduled to make tomorrow’s road trip and will see the trainers instead.
“Let’s just hope it’s cramps,” Joe Girardi said.
Turns out, Dickerson felt some cramping this morning but played through it.
“Probably trying to make a good first impression,” Girardi said.
The good news is that Girardi is “a little bit” more optimistic about Curtis Granderson, who did more than expected and remains a possibility for the Opening Day lineup.
