God’s Wrathwatch: Jeff Baker’s Finger OK

Chicago Cubs News

gods-wrathUtility man Jeff Baker is going to be ok, it seems.

Jeff Baker was supposed to start at third base, but he took a groundball off his right pinkie finger during batting practice and had to be scratched from the lineup. Baker went for X-rays, and the Cubs said those turned up negative. Daily Herald.

Presumably, he’ll take a few days off, and be back at it later this week. Still, the fact that he was rushed to the hospital for x-rays upon a ball hitting his pinkie indicates that the injury is a little more serious than your run of the mill jammed finger.
