Avoiding foul ball, Ibanez cuts lip, breaks tooth
NEW YORK -- Yankees outfielder Raul Ibanez suffered a lacerated lip and a broken tooth while attempting to evade a foul ball in the ninth inning of New York's 4-2 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.

Ibanez was in the dugout during the top of the ninth inning when he ducked away from a line drive, hitting his mouth on the Yankees' bench. He was immediately led away by head athletic trainer Steve Donohue.

The Yankees said that Ibanez was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital and will not make the charter flight with the team to Florida, although he is expected to join the club in time for Monday's 7:10 p.m. ET game against the Rays at Tropicana Field.
