Eduardo Nunez's Yankees teammates made a tape outline to commemorate his tumble

Yankees infielder Eduardo Nunez had some issues with the Rogers Centre playing surface on Wednesday:

He stayed in the game, and while he was held out of the lineup on Thursday, the injury is not expected to be serious. The incident's potential for humor was plenty significant though, especially in the minds of Joba Chamberlain and Vernon Wells.

The chalk/tape outline has been a key feature of New York's prank repertoire this season. Mariano Rivera had his own in May when the Yanks visited Kansas City, the site of Rivera's season-ending injury last year.
