Holy smokes, Brett Lawrie got took outta today’s game because-a some injury, eh?
Turns out it was his left groin. According to a tweet from Gregor Chisholm, he left the game for precautionary reasons and is day-to-day. And according to the National Post, Lawrie told Mike Wilner of the Fan 590 that the injury was not serious.
“Lawrie left following the third inning,” John Lott of the Post explains, “one inning after he beat out an infield single, stole second and scored on J.P. Arencibia’s single to left field. He told Wilner he felt the tightness on his way home after rounding third base.”
The gradual building up of these sorts of little injuries are one of the few fears anybody has about a guy who plays as fucking balls-out as Lawrie. But… infield single? Stole second? Then scored? I think this guy might be a little bit fun to watch this year.
Plus, now he knows what it’s like to have a groin injury– a g-g-groin, a g-g-groin, a g-g-groin injury– which has got to be some kind of a plus.
