McCann remains in after fouling ball off toe

BALTIMORE -- Brian McCann underwent X-rays that came back negative after fouling a ball off his right foot during the Yankees' 3-0 victory over the Orioles on Saturday. The catcher believes that he should be able to play on Sunday night in the team's final game before the All-Star break.

Serving as New York's designated hitter, McCann fouled a ball off his instep in the seventh inning, an at-bat in which he singled to center field. McCann was 3-for-4 for the afternoon, but he limped down the first-base line on his last hit.

"It hit me right on the bone, right on the first toe," McCann said. "I put pressure on it, and it hurt pretty bad. I was hoping for the best."

Since July 2, when hitting coach Kevin Long revealed that McCann had eliminated a toe-tap from his stance, McCann is 14-for-35 (.400) with four runs scored, two doubles, a home run and three RBIs.
