Sheffield could be out 2 - 3 months because of thumb 

Uh oh, the injury bug continues to strike the Yankees in Spring Training. This one could be a doozie. Apparently he was injured trying to catch a fly ball hit by Orlando Hudson (he didn't even catch it, it landed for a triple).

We won't know anything until he gets it checked out further. The 2-3 month time frame is only if he needs surgery. If he just needs to rest it up a bit, it should be significantly shorter.

The Yankees seem to be short on OFs since Bernie went down with an appendectomy. Look for a starting outfield of Lofton, Matsui & Travis Lee. Ouch.
