.240, no errors: Those are Eduardo Nunez’s stats over his 10 games. Get used to him at short. Derek Jeter isn’t expected back until at least mid-July.

Brian Cashman on the CT discovery of Jeter’s new ankle fracture: “I don’t think it’s something that just occurred, that there was an episode that happened in the last 24 hours. I think it was just a combination of continuing to deal with discomfort in various spots and swelling and eventually trying to figure out and drill down on it further.” Cashman said Jeter took the bad news flash “like a pro.”

Update, 7:16: Hughes gets through the first with just a soft single allowed.

Update, 7:26: Corbin allows a walk to Cano in the first, and that’s it.

Update, 7:33: Another good inning for Hughes, two Ks, ends it by getting A.J. Pollock to wave at a 93 mph fastball.

Update, 7:42: Francisco gets the Yankees’ first hit, but then three straight outs. Corbin made Ichiro and Nunez look bad, swinging at off-speed stuff.

Update, 7:45: Didi Gregorius first MLB HR, 1-0. It wouldn’t be a regular Hughes start if he didn’t give up at homer. He has allowed at least one in 32 of his last 43 starts here and 26 over his last 18 home starts these last two seasons.

Update, 7:58: Yankees have one hit through three. Corbin is in his second major-league season. He was off to a 2-0 start and had outdueled the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw last time out, throwing six shutout innings.

Update, 8:05: An infield hit for Goldschmidt and then a 4-6-3 double-play ball. Hughes has yielded just the run and three hits through four.

Update, 8:12: Yankees getting nothing done against Corbin, one hit through four. More on Corbin. He’s a native New Yorker, Cicero-North Syracuse High Class of 2007. Second-round pick by the Angels in 2009.

Update, 8:24: Excellent job by Hughes to get out of a second-and-third, one-out jam in the fifth.

Update, 8:27: Ichiro looking 39 so far, weak grounder to first, now 7 for 39 on the season.

Update, 8:29: Yankees one hit through five off Corbin.

Update, 8:32: Hughes serves up solo shot to Martin Prado, high fastball, 2-0.

Update, 8:46: Finally, a Yankees run. Cano’s rocket lands in the Yankees’ bullpen, 2-1 after six.

Update, 8:58: Two runs, six hits, no walks allowed by Hughes over seven. Can’t really complain about that. Much better than his first two starts.

Update, 9:04: Ichiro lines into a double play to end the seventh.

Update, 9:05: Boone Logan comes on for the eighth.

Update, 9:10: Logan gets first two, now Joba’s turn.

Update, 9:15: Nunez bad throw, first error of the season. But Chamberlain strands the runner.

Update, 9:16: Yankees won’t miss Corbin, one run, two hits allowed over seven. David Hernandez is on for the eighth.

Update, 9:19: Hafner-Hernandez rematch with one out.

Update, 9:22: Hafner works count full and walks. Lyle Overbay pinch runs.

Update, 9:27: Bases loaded, one out, Cano up.

Update, 9:32: Don’t see that too often. Cano strikes out on a ball that hit him.

Update, 9:35: Youkilis goes down swinging, too.

Update, 9:54: Cervelli ties it, HR to the left-field seats off Putz.

Update, 10:03: Extra innings. Robertson comes on for the 10th.

Update, 10:15: Lefty Matt Reynolds comes on for the last of the 10th, still 2-2.

Update, 10:22: On to the 11th. David Phelps comes on.

Update, 10:36: Second and third, two outs for PH Eric Hinske.

Update, 10:38: Fly ball to left. Another escape for Yankees pitching. Heath Bell comes on for Arizona.

Update, 10:53: Nunez lines out to strand two, although he should’ve been called out on a check-swing attempt the pitch prior. 12th inning coming.

Update, 11:04: Cody Ross RBI single with the bases loaded. Chavez follows with three-run double, 6-2. The few people left here are starting to leave.

Update, 11:21: Yankees lose 6-2.
