Cool, Cool, Cool, Cool, Cool: Brandon Kintzler Being Evaluated for Pec Discomfort (UPDATE)

Chicago Cubs

I hate to leave you on a sour note for the evening after a WHEW win for the Cubs, but a little news on Brandon Kintzler, who didn’t look 100% leaving the mound tonight in the 8th.

Here’s what we saw:

And here’s the confirmation:

Best we can surmise at this point is that he’ll get some preliminary evaluation done tonight, and maybe some treatment, but we (and he) might not know much until tomorrow. Sometimes you have to sleep, recover, and then see where you’re at. Sometimes that means you need a day or two, and sometimes it means, yeah, crap, I tweaked something.

In the meantime, I wonder if the Cubs will have yet another reliever waiting on standby for a call-up tomorrow if Kintzler has to join Craig Kimbrel and Pedro Strop on the Injured List … that’s a lovely thought.

Anyway, at least as of this moment the Dodgers are thumping the Cardinals. Goodnight!

‘Lil UPDATE: Sure enough, as expected:
