Todd Jones injured, Leyland hit in face
Apparently Todd Jones has been feeling some discomfort in his shoulder for the past six weeks, but Wednesday was the night in which it became a significant enough issue to shelve him. He couldn’t loosen it up in his warmup tosses and had to stop, he said, and he couldn’t get extension on his arm when he pitched. He’ll get an MRI Thursday or Friday, and Jim Leyland said it’s a “strong possibility” they’ll make a move to get another reliever (not Farnsworth, he won’t join the team until Friday) and likely put Jones on the DL.
Speaking of Leyland, he has hit by a foul ball on the side of his face during the game. The ball took a funny bounce and smacked him, but he kept on managing without medical attention.
