Jun 15 The New York Times is reporting New York Yankees OF Johnny Damon (hamstring) suffered a sore hamstring June 15 and had to leave that day's game against the Cleveland Indians. Damon said his hamstring problem was connected to his lower back problem. It has nothing to do with his aching left shoulder, his painful right elbow or the cracked bone in his right foot.
Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon left Thursday's game in the eighth inning after feeling a slight twinge in his right hamstring. He is expected to play Friday in Washington, according to the Associated Press.
Damon is as banged up as a demolition derby car, but he continues to play through all the maladies. Sooner or later, this has got to catch up with him and when it does, fantasy owners will be left scrambling.
