Yankee Pitcher Has Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease

(New York, NY) -- The Yankees and Mets are having completely different seasons, but they do share one thing in common. Both ball clubs have pitchers battling hand, foot, and mouth disease.

Dr. Nima Majlesi at Staten Island University Hospital says the virus is more common in children. The virus has symptoms including a fever, rashes, and fatigue.

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard was diagnosed with the disease about ten days ago. Yesterday, the Yankees announced that recently acquired hurler J.A. Happ is getting treatment for the illness.
