NEW YORK — Scans of Brian McCann's troublesome right foot were negative, and the New York Yankees say their catcher is day to day.

McCann first reported pain in the foot on May 24, when the foot and calf tightened on him during a game against Texas and he left after eight innings. McCann came out of Wednesday's 3-1 win at the Seattle Mariners in the second inning after the soreness in his right foot became too uncomfortable to continue.

He was examined Thursday at New York-Presbyterian by Yankees head team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad and orthopedic foot and ankle specialist Dr. Justin Greisberg. McCann also had an MRI and a CT scan of the foot.
