Cervelli leaves game after hit-by-pitch


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.

    As long as they stay away from his head.

    After disallowing all of the armor during the steriod era did they ever reverse any of those rules?

    I can see a reason to not allow padding that prevents pain and bruising but any padding that prevents breaks and fractures should be allowed.
