While this doesn’t quite compare to my man Glenallen Hill running through the plate glass window while being chased by an imaginary spider, I do think it’s the first time one of my players has gotten injured while sitting on the bench. It’s been that kind of year for the K-9. As June 1 approaches, contenders should know I’m open for business.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, “While sitting in the dugout during Saturday’s game, INF Jeff Keppinger was struck in the right foot by a foul ball off the bat of Braves LF Martin Prado. Initially, manager Joe Maddon wasn’t overly concerned. But Maddon said the injury worsened, and Keppinger showed up Sunday wearing a walking boot.”
