KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) New York Yankees left-hander Andrew Miller left Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Braves after being struck on the right arm by a line drive in the seventh inning.

Braves pinch hitter Willians Astudillo hit Miller's first pitch right back at Miller, who reached up as the ball hit him and bounced away for a hit. The pitcher threw his glove and walked into the Yankees' dugout.

Manager Joe Girardi said Miller suffered ''a substantial bruise.''

X-rays came back negative. Miller will also undergo a CT scan.

Dellin Betances came in from the bullpen to pitch for the Yankees after Miller left. New York won 2-0.
