"Looks like he bruised up pretty good," manager Aaron Boone said. "Looks like he took a pretty good shot, so we'll see where we are with him overnight and in the morning. At this point, it is probably a day-to-day situation."

Drury, who was recalled from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes Barre on July 20, is batting .176 with one homer and seven RBIs in 18 games this season.
