len thinks hamstring...or ankle...fwiw.
given how much pain he was showing vs how quickly that turned into getting up and limping (lightly) off i hope it's minor.
If he broke a bone , he wouldn't be walking. Otherwise, being able to bear full weight is a good thing, even if it's a severe sprain or a hammy. The replay looks like it's an ankle though.
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but if Castro's injury were a knee injury, he wouldn't be walking, no? Quad?
no rizzo and probably no castro (at least for a few days)...this could be an ugly series of games.
they got garza tomorrow, so they can just bunt to pitcher for a few runs...so there's that.
this thing here, this thing where the Cubs have exciting players that occasionally perform well...I can live with this for a long time.
Len Kasper on the telecast also said the Olt will play for KC and might be up by the weekend.
Also, Castro hurt his left leg sliding into home. He's walking off and only a slight limp. Not sure if it's his ankle which spun around on the slow mo replay.
...and castro is severely injured.
...and he hobbles off on his own. he might have escaped serious injury.
Bring him up!!! Sorry, Welly!!
Bring him up!!!
He'll come back up, and you'll like it.
Schwarber hits a grand slam to cap off the 4th, 9-0 Daytona.
bottom of the 4th
McKinney 2B, Contreras bunt 1B (guessing a sac attempt), Radenmacher sac fly
5-0 at the moment
Zastryzny with 4 IP, 3 K, 2 H so far...
I almost wish he wouldn't come back up.
jacos the source is Jesse, not Phil!
huzzah, a 2-run VogelBOMB in 3rd makes it 4-0.
Muskat says Olt may play some games with Kane County and get called up.
