From the AP:

Yankees third baseman Robin Ventura, who had a sore jaw and bruised neck after colliding Sunday with Seattle shortstop Carlos Guillen, had X-rays and a CT scan Monday in New York, and both were negative.

Cashman said Ventura is unlikely to start Tuesday, when the Yankees open a homestand against Oakland. David Wells (3-0) is to start for New York against Barry Zito (1-1).

"I don't think he'll play tomorrow night, just from the fact that one of the premier left-handers in the game is going," Cashman said. "He's just day to day."
