New York Yankees left fielder Joey Gallo exited Saturday’s game against the visiting Cleveland Indians with neck tightness.

Gallo, 27, was replaced by Tyler Wade after the Yankees batted in the third inning. In his only at-bat, Gallo fouled out to third base in the second inning.

Gallo is hitting .166 (25-for-151) with 12 homers and 20 RBIs in 46 games since New York acquired him from the Texas Rangers on July 29. Overall, the slugger is batting .204 with 37 homers and 75 RBIs this season.

On Friday, Gallo homered twice in an 8-0 win. He entered Saturday with six homers in his last six games with at least one at-bat.
