Aybar exits against Yanks with left calf cramp

NEW YORK -- Angels shortstop Erick Aybar came out of the game after two and a half innings at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday with a cramp in his left calf.

Jason Vargas caught Jayson Nix stealing in the bottom of the second, throwing to Mark Trumbo before the Angels' first baseman retired Nix at second base with a throw to Aybar. While applying the tag, though, Aybar was spiked by Nix in his lower left leg. He sat on the ground momentarily, sprung up, then was retired on a slow roller to CC Sabathia to end the top of the third and came out of the game.

Aybar entered Tuesday with a .283/.319/.381 slash line in 95 games this season. In place of Aybar, Tommy Field moved over to shortstop and Grant Green came in as the new second baseman.

Aybar was walking around fine after the Angels' 14-7 loss and said he thinks he'll be able to play on Wednesday.
