Found July 31, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Chicago White Sox scratched right-hander Jake Peavy prior to last night’s start, as they were hoping to have him avoid injury while being shopped so close to the trade deadline. Maybe they should have taken the same approach with outfielder Alex Rios, who exited last night’s game against the Cleveland Indians after fouling a pitch off his left foot, reports Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago. Fortunately for the White Sox and Rios – and whatever team eventually acquires him – it doesn’t appear the injury is significant. X-rays were negative, and Rios told reporters after the game that he doesn’t expect the ailment to keep him out of the lineup for an extended period. "It was very sore right after I hit it. When I stride and stepped to swing at the next pitch, it was really sore when I turned my foot," Rios said. "But I don't think there's anything major or even if I'm going to miss any time. I'm going to get some X-rays now and it should be OK, hopefully." Rios fouled the pitch off his foot in the eighth inning of last night’s contest. He was visited by manager Robin Ventura as well as the team’s training staff, and it was ultimately decided that he should be lifted from the game. With today’s trade deadline approaching, Rios had been garnering significant attention from interested contenders. Chicago has already parted with Matt Thornton, Jesse Crain and Jake Peavy, and Rios could be the next to go if teams aren’t overly concerned about his foot injury.
