Oh No: Steve Cishek Hit By Warmup Throw, Carted Off the Field (UPDATE: “Bad Bruise”)

Chicago Cubs

This is just not good, particularly given how effective, durable, and reliable Steve Cishek has been the last two years …

It’s hard to do the math on just how unlucky that is. Hopefully he’s going to be OK.

We’ll have more when we know more, and I’d rather not do any speculating or arm-chair doctoring right now. He got hit hard enough and in a painful enough place that the Cubs apparently thought it best that he not walk on it. So, any way you slice it, that ain’t good.

UPDATE: Woof. Here’s video of the throw from Kintzler – slider? – that did the damage:

UPDATE: Tentatively good news, but you know how these things can change course after a guy sleeps, and determines that he doesn’t feel so good the next day:
