Masahiro Tanaka wasn't the only Yankee to come away from the team's 4-1 win against the Mets with injury worries.
Aaron Judge jammed his thumb sliding into second base in the first inning and Aroldis Chapman battled through knee tendinitis. Neither over concerned about their ailments.
"Not too concerned," Judge said after the game. "Just felt a little something but I'm good to go ... Feels good, a little sore, but nothing too bad. We'll see in the morning."
Chapman believes he's fine, though admits it was the worst pain this injury has given him to date.
"I want to say maybe yes (it was the worst pain), but at the end of the day, it didn't get in the way of me doing my job," Chapman said. "And I was able to pitch fine."
Judge, Chapman and the Yankees continue their series with the Mets on Saturday night at 7:15 p.m.
