MLB Injury News:
Cleveland Indians slugger Mark Reynolds has been one of the best hitters in baseball to start the 2013 season. For this reason, the team and its fans were all the more concerned when he suffered what appeared to be an injury last night. However, Reynolds and manager Terry Francona told reporters -- including Michael Radano of MLB.com -- after the game that the infielder is OK.
During the fifth inning of yesterday's contest against the Philadelphia Phillies, Reynolds sustained a "stinger" during an at-bat against Cole Hamels. The ailment was severe enough to cause Reynolds to exit the game.
However, if Reynolds needed to keep playing, he could have, according to Francona. The move was made as a precaution, as the skipper told reporters after the game that it also had to do with defense.
"He just needed to get the feeling back," Francona
said. "We [took him out because we] wanted to get [Nick Swisher] out of
right. [Reynolds] is okay."
Reynolds told reporters that he "just kind of hyperextended it a bit," referring to his arm. It doesn't seem like this is something that will keep him out for an extended period, which is good news for the Tribe. So far this season, Reynolds is hitting .271/.362/.581 with seven doubles and 11 home runs.

There were certain facets of life I felt were resolute. The serenity of day games at Wrigley. The guitar riffs of Dan Auerbach. Ray Allen's jump shot. Ron Swanson's mustache. Given the mercurial nature of our culture, it's comforting and reassuring to have these pillars of constancy.
So when one of these columns disintegrates, my world is sent spiraling into disarray...
