Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks had an MRI that showed inflammation in his sore left shoulder that will keep him out of the lineup for the next few days.
Meanwhile, reliever Braden Pinder has partial ligament tear in his right elbow and is deciding whether to have Tommy John surgery or go through rehab to pitch with the tear.
Hicks received a cortisone shot and will be shut down for four or five days, but the Yankees hadn't decided yet whether to put Hicks on the disabled list, Joe Girardi said.
Hicks, who was only hitting .091 left Friday night's game after diving for Brandon Guyer's bloop single.
If Hicks goes on the DL, possible replacements could be Ben Gamel or Aaron Judge, both at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Judge is hitting .322 with two homers and nine RBI at Scranton/W-B.
The Yankees have already lost reliever Nick Rumbelow, who will have Tommy John surgery.
