Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues:
– A's outfielder Coco Crisp is likely headed to the Disabled List according to Jane Lee of MLB.com. Crisp missed seven games last month because of a virus and “on Tuesday he was out of the lineup again as a result of a sinus infection.” Yesterday he was taken out of the game after just seven innings.
“He had to come out of the game, obviously, which we didn't envision at the start of the game,” manager Bob Melvin said. “We'll take the off-day and see where we go from here. We're probably less encouraged at this point with where we're going with him than earlier [Wednesday]. It's just been a struggle for him. For him to take himself out of the game means he was struggling.” Lee adds that Crisp will be evaluated today.
– Third baseman Eric Chavez was taken out of the game yesterday during an AB because of a whiplash and according to the Associated Press he could also have a concussion.
– Ernie Smith City Royals have placed infielder Yuniesky Betancourt on the 15-day Disabled List with an ankle injury according to Aaron Gleeman of NBCSports.
– According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Pablo Sandoval sustained a fracture in his left hamate bone and will be out for at least six weeks. We learned earlier today that Sandoval is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow.
