Hunter left Tuesday's game with a hand contusion and X-rays were negative, MLive's Chris Iott reports.

This is excellent news, as Hunter's reaction following getting hit by a Dellin Betances pitch in the ninth inning suggested that there could have been a fracture. There's no official timetable for his return, but he should be considered day-to-day for now.

Hunter left Tuesday's game in the ninth inning after being hit on the left hand by a pitch, MLive's Chris Iott reports.

He appeared to be in significant pain, and isn't one to typically come out of a game, so this could be serious. Dellin Betances, who touched 100 mph earlier in the inning, was on the mound for the Yankees, so it certainly should come as a surprise that Hunter was in pain after getting hit. Consider him day-to-day for now, and Don Kelly would be the likely replacement in the outfield should Hunter miss some time.
