New York Yankees RHP Luis Cessa will undergo an MRI after leaving Monday's game in the fifth inning with a back injury, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
Cessa injured his right rhomboid and left the game accompanied by a trainer with one out in the fifth inning.
Cessa visibly grimaced after Juan Lagares fouled off Cessa's 64th pitch of the night, which resulted in manager Joe Girardi visiting the mound with a trainer. Two pitches later, after Lagares singled, and Girardi removed Cessa from the game.
Girardi said he does not believe the injury is too serious, according to NJ.com's Brendan Kuty.
Cessa allowed two runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings and was replaced by Chad Green, who threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings in the Yankees' 4-2 win over the Mets.
