    Default Valverde Leaves Game w/ Undisclosed Injury




    For those not watching the game. He grimaced, Avila called out Rand, and he was pulled with a 3-1 count. Hopefully minor.

    Updates here I guess.

    Lower back tightness.

    I'd assume day to day.

    I wish I felt the closer getting injured was catastrophic, but I don't.

    This is good news. As much as I don't trust Valverde, there is a much better chance of him getting his act together than the middle relievers. I don't want to see a situation where Putkonen, Balester, etc pitch more innings.

    I would put it past the WS to have tasered him

    Very, very good news. Valverde has been outstanding as a member of this franchise. Worth every penny and desperately needed.
    Retired. Thanks for the entertainment.

    It didn't look like an arm thing. I thought maybe a hammy tweak...........

    Saw him bending over and stretching on a couple of pitches prior to Avila coming out to talk to him.

    I really don't think he's been much different than last year actually. 2 differences - he was really, really lucky a lot last year and this year's infield is slow. I know that Cabrera and Raburn are better than we thought they would be - but they are both still below average defenders and as solid as Jhonny is - he's not exactly the quickest shortstop.
