I saw the same thing yesterday; a guy who is trying to hit everything 400 feet to the pull side. He seemed on some outside pitches and then would pull off at the last second. After his first AB, I don't think Detroit threw him anything that wasn't outside corner or outside. He needs to recalibrate and take some pressure off of himself.

Rocco confirmed on the radio broadcast that Rooker's injury does go back to the belly flop the other day.

Big dog's suggestion for how to win on the road: play to win in 9, avoid the ridiculous Little League extra-inning rule. Why not just have home-run hitting contests, like a soccer shootout?

Interesting lineup, but it makes perfect sense. Hope we crush Boyd and Maeda cruises

He appears to be per Gamecast.

 

Radio hasn't mentioned a substitution.

Man, I can't keep up with MLB any more. I thought Nomar Garciamazara had retired years ago.

Looks like Rooker to the IL with a cervical strain. LHP Waddell called up. No corresponding 40-man move as of yet as Waddell wasn't on the 40 to begin the season. 

 

Seems that Rooker just can't catch a break. I have high hopes for him, but he needs to get healthy and get some work in across the river. 

I'm not a doctor, but before just googling this, I thought that 'cervical strain' was a problem men typically didn't have to worry about. I figured this was a modern day 'bilateral leg weakness' kind of thing with a more bizarre name. Anyway... good luck with your stiff neck Mr. Rooker. See you soon.

That's twice today already. Are you sure that you're mind isn't slipping in its advanced age?

I guess that's one way to get him to move his feet...
