Last night in the first inning Shane Victorino took a Randy Wolf pitch to the elbow, and was called out after umpire Brian O’Nora blinked and blew the call, saying that Shane offered at the pitch.
Victorino left the game with numbness in his arm, but after Monday’s game Shane said that he was feeling better.
I sure hope that’s true.
If the Phillies find a way to make a run, Victorino is going to be very important to the cause. At the same time, if things fall apart in the next few days, Victorino does have some value, and the Phillies won’t be able to trade him if he’s hurt.
