    Scary, but fortunately the X-Rays were negative and this appears to be minor.

    New York starter Chien-Ming Wang left in the third inning with a bruised right knee after being hit by a batted ball in the Yankees' 9-8 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

    Wang was hit by Curtis Granderson's hard one-hop liner. After briefly walking gingerly around the mound, he was taken out of the game.

    The right-hander underwent X-rays at a local hospital, which were negative.

    "Everything was normal, so that's good," Yankees manager Joe Torre said. "One thing you don't want to mess with now, even though there's nothing that's going to be long term here, you don't want him favoring something and wind up hurting his arm. So, you're just going to have to see how long it takes."

    Wang is competing with Jaret Wright and Shawn Chacon for two rotation spots behind opening day starter Randy Johnson and Mike Mussina. He allowed two runs and three hits in 2 1-3 innings. New York plans on using four starters during the first couple weeks of the season because of off days.

    Torre doesn't know if Wang will make his next exhibition start Friday at Arizona.

    "The next 48 hours will probably tell us more than anything else," Torre said.

    Wang hasn't ruled out pitching against the Diamondbacks.

    "Not too bad," he said of his kneecap.

        Yeah, and I'm expecting pretty good things from Wang this year.
