Romine suffers slight concussion, will rest

BALTIMORE -- Yankees catcher Austin Romine suffered a slight concussion when he was hit by a foul tip on Tuesday, manager Joe Girardi said.

Romine left Camden Yards for tests during New York's 7-5 victory over the Orioles. He was struck in the mask by a ball off Adam Jones' bat during the seventh inning and was removed from the game.

"He's not going to be on the field today for pregame," Girardi said. "I will not use him [Wednesday]. We'll see where he's at in a couple of days."

Romine is batting .296 with one home run and 10 RBIs in 60 games this season for New York. The Yankees also have catchers Chris Stewart and J.R. Murphy on the active roster.
