NEW YORK -- Though little has gone right for the Yankees over the past two weeks, the club seems to have caught a break with its latest injury scare. Brian McCann was back in the Yankees' lineup on Monday, after exiting Sunday night's 5-2 loss to the Rangers due to cramping in his right foot and calf.
Batting fifth and playing catcher, it didn't look as if McCann missed a step, as his booming three-run homer contributed to New York's eight-run first inning.
