Andrew Cashner leaves game after being hit with broken bat

5 Comments

A scary moment in the bottom of the sixth inning in Cleveland this afternoon as Rangers starter Andrew Cashner, making his first appearance after two weeks on the disabled, list sawed off Edwin Encarnacion with a fastball. Unfortunately, the part of the bat that got sawed off went flying straight at Cashner, hitting him in the arm.

Cashner went down in obvious pain, but he remained in the game to face one more batter. He was then lifted for a reliever. Thankfully, however, he only has some contusions. X-Rays were negative.
