The Yankees scratched catcher Chris Stewart from Sunday night’s game after he experienced more symptoms related to dehydration.

Stewart, who was originally in Sunday’s lineup, went to New York Presbyterian Hospital for further tests. A concussion was ruled out, but Stewart is scheduled to return to the hospital on Monday for a further check-up.

Stewart said he thinks he will be fine and might even play on Monday.

Stewart first felt the symptoms during Saturday's 11-1 loss to the Red Sox. He left the game after driving in the Yankees' only run in the fourth. He hydrated with Gatorade and water, and thought he was better.

"My body just felt weak," Stewart said on Saturday after the game. "Feel alright now. Hopefully good night's sleep, re-hydrate tonight and feel good [Sunday]."

Stewart was replaced in the lineup by Austin Romine. Sunday's starting shortstop Jayson Nix would be the backup catcher.

If Stewart needs to go on the disabled list, the Yankees would need to make a 40-man roster move to fit Bobby Wilson on the 25-man.
