UPDATE: Good news: The Rays are reporting that Jennings and Upton are just suffering from “general soreness” and are otherwise OK.  Whew.  Initial reports made it sound like they were both gonna die or something.

2:09 PM: Breaking news from the Marlins-Rays Port Charlotte, Florida.  Apparently B.J. Upton and Desmond Jennings collided in the outfield while chasing a gapper from Austin Kearns in left center field. People who saw it are saying it occurred at full speed.

Both Upton and Jennings were carted off the field.  No word on their conditions yet.

We’ll update as soon as we hear something.
