Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was forced to exit today’s game against the Mets after he was hit in the knuckles with a pitch and suffered some contusions. He’s getting precautionary X-rays, but Blue Jays manager John Gibbons says it isn’t considered serious.
Better safe than sorry. We’ve seen a lot of guys miss time after taking pitches to the hand.
In other news, this is the part of spring training where, basically, nothing good can happen. A lot of nothing can happen, but when things actually do happen, they’re almost always bad. If it wasn’t for dumb weather the season should rightly start on St. Patrick’s Day.
