That could be a bad one:
INJURY UPDATE: Carlos Martínez was removed from tonight's game with a right shoulder strain. #STLCards
— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) July 31, 2018
Having only relatively recently returned from an oblique strain – and taking it easy on his pitches as he returned, which always makes you wonder about mechanics – Carlos Martinez was hit again by the injury bug, this time in his shoulder. And shoulders are always scary.
The Cardinals already should strongly have been considering selling, but this might be the thing that puts them over the edge. They don’t have much time left.
