Without a televised game, it was tough to know just what happened with Albert Almora, Jr. yesterday. We knew that he made an incredible catch, and then was later pulled from the game. We knew that there were pictures of him with a bloody nose, likely from just before he was pulled. But that was basically it.
Almora is in the lineup for tonight’s game, which should have comforted any lingering concerned minds, but just in case, thank you Carrie Muskat for buttoning it up:

He’s fine. Nose is fine. Outfield defense is fine. Everything’s fine.
It was also fine when he knocked this homer yesterday:
