New York Yankees infielder Jayson Nix fractured his left hand after getting hit by Toronto Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey in the bottom of the second inning of Wednesday's game, reports the Newark Star-Ledger.

Nix will be re-evaluated on Thursday, and it is likely that he will miss the remainder of the regular season. If Nix goes on the disabled list, he will be the 24th different Yankees player to spend time on the shelf.

VERDUCCI: A-Rod vs. MLB and Yankees are battles only just beginning Nix was filling in at third base for Alex Rodriguez, who had the night off. Mark Reynolds replaced Nix at third base. Nix was hitting .236 with three home runs and 24 RBI in 87 games this season.
