Carl Pavano had an MRI exam and X-rays taken Sunday on his injured left foot. The team didn't immediately release the results, but Pavano said afterward that he wasn't concerned.
''Just for precaution,'' Pavano said in Tampa, Fla. ''It's feeling better than it did. I'm not really too alarmed. There's no bruising or anything. It's just stiff.''
Pavano was hit on the instep in batting practice Saturday by infielder Alberto Gonzalez's line drive. The right-hander may not pitch in Tuesday's intrasquad game.
''That will be up in the air for sure,'' Yankees manager Joe Torre said. ''Hopefully he doesn't fall behind significantly. It's not going to matter if he misses a day or so. I'm sure it's sore. We'll have to wait and see.''
Pavano hasn't pitched in the major leagues since June 27, 2005, due to various injuries.
