X-Rays on Javy Baez’s Thumb Were Negative … Oh, Also, Javy Baez Had X-Rays on His Thumb

Chicago Cubs

The slide that shook up Javy Baez in today’s game saw him get knocked in the head and neck by Orlando Arcia. Although that was lingering a bit after that, it turns out the worse injury was something we didn’t see at the time: a jammed left thumb that ultimately took him out of the game.

Good news, no break. Bad news, he might miss time:

Baez is just about the only guy who seems to have been an exception over the last couple years to the rule that if you see a guy get dinged, Joe Maddon will absolutely sit him down for at least a day. Still, I think Baez probably sits for at least a day this time around – he could probably use the rest anyway.

More tomorrow, I’m sure.
