Stewart hospitalized due to dizziness

Chris Stewart was a late scratch from Sunday night’s lineup. Originally slated to catch and bat ninth in the order, Stewart after batting practice reported the same symptoms of light-headedness that forced him out of Saturday night’s game against the Red Sox in the fifth inning. Backup Austin Romine was thrust into the starting role.

Stewart was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital for tests. It is a condition that bears some watching. He may be suffering from symptoms related to a concussion. Catchers take their share of shots to the head during the course of games. Jayson Nix, who was the starting shortstop and 8-hole hitter, is the Yankees’ emergency catcher.

The start of Sunday night’s game was delayed 50 minutes because of expected thunderstorms in the forecast that did not materialize. The tarp was placed on the field for about an hour, but it did not rain. Storms were forecast throughout the evening.
