On Wednesday afternoon, Cleveland Indians catcher Carlos Santana left the team's 5-4 loss to the New York Yankees in the ninth inning due to what Indians manager Manny Acta described as mild-back tightness. As of this time, Santana is set to be evaluated when the Indians arrive in Baltimore in anticipation of the team's next series against the Orioles.

Santana finished the game without a hit in three at-bats but did score a run in the second inning after reaching base on a throwing error by Alex Rodriquez.
