Hillenbrand is playing.


Sheffield is not.

Get Hillenbrand in your lineup as he is currently one of the hottest players in MLB.

Torrey made it sound like no big deal here (but this was published 7 hours ago)..wind knocked out of him, etc. I hope that he plays. I personally am more concerned about his wrist hitting the ground with all of that foce to try to break his fall......than his knee hitting the ground:

Sheffield concern spills over

Gary Sheffield gives Yankees a scare as he lies on ground after collision with Shea Hillenbrand.

Sometimes, even in laughers, like yesterday's 17-6 spanking of the Blue Jays, there are times you have to hold your breath. For the Yankees, that moment came in the bottom of the fifth inning when in an instant it looked like the Bombers were headed for a long-term Bernie/Bubba platoon in right field.

With the Yankees up 10-6 and the bases loaded, Gary Sheffield, who had already singled twice, stolen a base and scored twice, poked what looked like a sure hit into the hole between first and second, one that looked like it would find its way into right field.


But Toronto second baseman Aaron Hill somehow got to the ball and tried for a play at first. Hill's throw pulled Blue Jays first baseman Shea Hillenbrand off the bag, and in the process, Sheffield and Hillenbrand collided with both players going to the ground.


Hillenbrand actually looked to have taken the worst of it when it appeared Sheffield's knee caught him in the back of the head. Sheffield laid crumpled on the ground for several minutes while Yankees assistant trainer Steve Donohue tended to him. Sheffield eventually walked off with Donohue and Joe Torre and was replaced by Crosby. Hillenbrand was also replaced when he was lifted for Lyle Overbay.


Sheffield was examined after the game by team physician Dr. Stuart Hershon and the diagnosis was bruises to his left wrist and his right knee. He's listed as day-to-day. Hillenbrand was to undergo a precautionary CT scan.


"Sheff is OK," Torre said after the game. "His wrist is a little sore so we'll see how that is (today). He had the wind knocked out of him. I didn't even see him go down. It was a scary thing seeing those two big bodies merge."
