gods-wrathChicago Cubs utility player Jeff Baker is headed to an eye specialist for an examination of his right eye, which started given him problems late in yesterday’s game against the Dodgers. Specifically, he lost vision in his right eye.

Baker didn’t react when the Dodgers’ Russell Martin lined a single past him to lead off the eighth inning. Cubs manager Lou Piniella went onto the field to talk to the infielder and then replaced him with Mike Fontenot.

“Baker had vision problems and couldn’t see out of his right eye,” Piniella said. “It was a little scary.”

Baker was examined by Dr. Jon Rosin, the team opthamologist. The club expected to know more on Friday. cubs.com.

Hopefully it was just a temporary issue and not a symptom of something more serious.
