In what has become a rather unfortunate rite of spring, Frankie Cervelli left today’s game with an injury after getting by a pitch in his left leg, just below his knee. Thankfully it’s nothing serious. He iced it down after the game and told Erik Boland “it’s fine. No problem.”
Cervelli suffered a broken bone after fouling a ball off his left foot last spring, shelving him until May. The year before he missed time in camp with a quad strain. Two years before that he had his wrist broken by Elliot Johnson on a collision at the plate. Thankfully this latest March ailment seems like nothing more than the typical day-to-day stuff baseball players deal with.
