McKinney leaves game after crashing into LF wall

Yankees OF Brian McKinney left today's game in the 2nd with a right shoulder sprain following a collision with the left/center wall. X-rays were negative.

McKinney was playing left field today to give Gardner a day off. Gardner took McKinney's place in left when he was pulled. At this time, it's unclear whether McKinney will join Aaron Hicks and Jacoby Ellsbury on the DL. It is also unclear whom the Yankees will use as their 4th outfielder. Brandon Drury, Tyler Austin, and Tyler Wade all have limited experience in the outfield but could be called upon to play out there should the Yankees need it.
