Yankees OF Aaron Hicks and closer Aroldis Chapman left Saturday's game with injuries, but the team isn't expecting either player to miss much time.
Hicks suffered from left leg cramps, while Chapman felt pain in his knee. Manager Aaron Boone said after Saturday's game that he thinks Chapman is suffering from the left knee tendinitis, which forced him to miss time earlier this season.
"I think the good thing about it is how well he's pitched with it all year," Boone said, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "I don't think there's much that has changed with it. Obviously, it's something that we watch with him very closely and that he's constantly staying on top of."
Chapman explained that pain was "different" from before.
"You can feel it a little bit when you walk around and stuff, but today was just a little different," Chapman said via an interpreter. "It was a completely different sensation -- more pain."
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that he believes Chapman is again dealing with left knee tendinitis, which he has suffered from him this season.
Meanwhile, Hicks said the Yankees just did not want to risk any chances by allowing him to continue playing in the game once he felt the cramp.
"It didn't hurt or anything," Boone said. "Just one of those things where they didn't want to take a chance with it."
Hicks will likely miss Sunday's series finale, manager Aaron Boone said.
