Fresh off being named CBSSports.com's batter of the month for April, Blue Jays' slugger Jose Bautista was pulled for a pinch runner in the seventh inning against the Yankees. He left with what is being called tightness in his neck, though he doesn't expect to miss any time. Bautista reportedly began experiencing the issue earlier in the week after he slept on it wrong. (MLB.com via Twitter)

Bautista, 30, has become one of baseball's premier hitters. After hitting 54 home runs and driving home 124 last season, he's gotten even better in 2011. He leads all of baseball in on-base percentage (a staggering .532 heading into Sunday) and slugging percentage (.780 heading into Sunday) to go with nine home runs and 16 RBI. He's been so menacing he's gotten pitched around, too, as he also leads the majors with 28 walks.
