Scary, unfortunate news out from the Cubs’ AA Tennessee squad today:
Scary scene at Smokies Stadium. Jen-Ho Tseng takes a line drive off his right leg. Leaves field with help of the trainer & his interpreter.

Cubs pitching prospect Tseng just took a hot ball to the kneecap. Whole staff to mound, will have to be helped into the clubhouse

Tseng, 21, is one of the Cubs’ better pitching prospects, especially among those at AA and AAA, so any missed time for him would be a blow. Hopefully he’ll be OK, and we’ll update you if and when we have more information.
Before the injury, Tseng was throwing a strong debut, with three scoreless innings, allowing three hits, one walk, and striking out four.
