Vazquez leaves with bruised finger, x-rays negative

By

Update (10:14pm): X-rays negative. And exhale.

9:52pmIt’s a bruised right index finger for Vazquez, and he’s being taken for x-rays.

9:31pm: After six innings of one hit, no run ball, Javy Vazquez left tonight’s game with an apparent finger injury. Looks like he might have gotten clipped with the ball while laying down a sac bunt in the bottom of the 6th. He had only thrown 70 pitches up to that point. I’ll update this post with more info once it’s available.

    In this thread, there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    Seriously though, I wouldn’t be thrilled about an extended tour of “Mitre the fifth starter”

    this is why there is no pitcher batting in the all star games. NL rules are stuuuuppppiiiiidddddd. “But it requires more strategy!!11!!” “Its more fun”

    Yeesh

    Fuck the NL, seriously. That doesn’t sound THAT terrible though, right?

      Depends whats bruised (muscle v. bone) and how bad it is. It could affect his grip on the ball, it might not. We’re assuming its not broken.

    Showed him taking his gloves off after the ab and it looked like it was bleeding a bit too
