Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro, right, is assessed for an apparent leg injury by manager Joe Girardi, left, and others during the third inning against the White Sox on June 26, 2017, in Chicago.
The Yankees have lost 10 of their last 13 games, and their win Monday did not come easy.
The Yankees already are without Aaron Hicks, who was placed on the DL with a right oblique strain Monday that could keep him out for three or four weeks.
The 27-year-old Castro is batting.313 with 12 home runs and 45 RBIs in 73 games in his second season with NY. He was replaced in the field by Rob Refsnyder in the bottom of the second. But two more White Sox errors led to two more Yankees runs in the sixth.
With Matt Holliday still sidelined from an allergic reaction, Castro's injury leaves yet another hole in a lineup that has been one of the best in baseball to this point in the season. Although he has primarily played shortstop this season, he has also spent time at second base, third base and each outfield spot. The 22-year-old infielder was hitting.313 with five homers and 25 RBIs in 71 games for the RailRiders.
"So getting him back will help".
