Hideki Matsui joined Johnny Damon on the bench today, leaving the game with a strained hamstring. Johnny Damon has been sidelined as of late with a strained calf and both will need replacements for the next couple of games, potentially. Matsui, who hit .302 with 8 HR in 51 games last year, after suffering a broken left wrist in May. Damon, who hit .285 with 24 HR and 80 RBI, has only played in one game this year, but the Yankees don't expect for Damon to miss too much time. However, if one of their injuries becomes serious, could they bring back Bernie Williams?
