New York Yankees right fielder Trey Amburgey exited Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox with a right hamstring cramp.

Amburgey pulled up lame after ending the fourth by hitting into a double play. He hunched over and was in pain after reaching first base.

Amburgey joined the Yankees Thursday and made his debut a day later. He was hitting .312 in 38 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre before getting called up.

After Amburgey exited, Brett Gardner entered the game while Ryan LaMarre moved to right field and Greg Allen moved to left.

It marked the second straight game a New York outfielder suffered an injury. In Saturday's rain-shortened 3-1 win, left fielder Tim LoCastro suffered a torn ACL in his right knee after crashing into the wall in foul territory to catch a ball hit by Alex Verdugo in the first inning.

New York has four outfielders on the injured list, and Aaron Judge is one of six players on the COVID-19 list.

Starting center fielder Aaron Hicks was lost for the season in mid-May with a wrist injury and, earlier this month, Clint Frazier (vertigo) and Miguel Andujar (strained left wrist) landed on the injured list.
