Guillen leaves rehab game with soreness
Tons of stuff going on tonight, including me flying out to LA for the upcoming series against the Angels. Catching up now while on wifi on the flight.
First, courtesy of John Wagner and his Coop Scoop blog for the Toledo Blade, comes an update on Carlos Guillen, who left Sunday night’s game for Triple-A Toledo after one at-bat. Doesn’t sound like a setback, but does sound like caution.
“He felt a little soreness, so we decided to take him out and nip it in the bud before anything worse happened,” Mud Hens manager Phil Nevin said. “He’s going to go with us to Indianapolis, and I expect he will be in the lineup [Monday].”
Keep in mind that, barring some craziness (and haven’t we seen enough of that this week), Guillen will probably be rehabbing with the Hens up until the All-Star break in a week. So missing a game doesn’t exactly set him a back much, if it all. If he misses multiple games, it’s something else.
