Rangers shortstop injures his groin, exits after three innings
By T.R. Sullivan / MLB.com
NEW YORK -- Rangers shortstop Michael Young left Wednesday's game with the Yankees after three innings with what club officials said was a "mild strain of his left groin muscle." Young had a similar problem earlier this year against Tampa Bay and ended up missing just one game. He has also been dealing with a sore left calf muscle and a hairline fracture in the tip of his ring finger on his left hand. Young was 1-for-2 with an RBI double before leaving the game. He was replaced at shortstop by Ramon Vazquez.
