Indians' Santana exits with thumb injury

The SportsXchange

Cleveland Indiana catcher Carlos Santana, who is off to a hot start, had to leave Monday's game against the New York Yankees with a thumb injury.

Santa got crossed up on a ninth-inning pitch from Chris Perez and was struck on the left thumb.

The preliminary diagnosis is a contusion, according to MLB.com, and his status should become clearer after the results of X-rays are known.

Santana, 27, went 1-for-2 with two walks on Monday, and he is hitting .500 (13-for-26) with two home runs, four doubles and five RBIs through seven games.
