Nunez leaves game with right hand contusion

By

5:08pm: X-rays were negative, the team announced. Just a bruise and Nunez will get a few days off.

2:47pm: Eduardo Nunez left this afternoon’s game with a right hand contusion after getting hit by a pitch in the fifth inning. He was lifted for pinch-runner Ramiro Pena right away. He is going to go for precautionary x-rays. Sounds like it’s just a bruise, but we’ll let you know if it’s anything more serious.

    Is Ramiro Pena the immediate backup to Eduardo Nunez? That would be a less-than-ideal bench piece. Pena is even more useless than Cervelli.

    Hope this doesn’t affect his fielding.

    The news of negative x-rays is certainly better than the news of Bill Hall going north with the team. While Nunez has his drawbacks, I still think he’s a better reserve than Hall.
