Why is Byrnes out again?

Postby Don G. » Sat May 17, 2008 8:43 pm

He's not in the lineup? Why would they take him out after he hit a home run yesterday? Is he injured?

Late scratch is all I've heard out of the Tiger's FSN broadcast.

No word on why, but you'd have to assume it was some kind of nagging injury or something, in order to put Salazar in there against Gallaraga.

Damn, hopefully some more insight after the game. I wanna make sure he's ok before I set my lineup for next week.

In in the 7th as a pinch-hitter for Salazar.... :-S

Makes me think it's either a matchup type thing (against Gallaraga?) or he just wasn't feeling very good this morning during warmups. Apparently he's doing alright now, playing in LF.

Finally got the info, in the bottom of the 9th, from the Tigers' broadcast.

Apparently Byrnes has been hampered by a sore hamstring, which prompted his scratch today. Not sure why he came in later if he was sore, but maybe the trainer got him all fixed up with an extra-long warmup.

May have some impact on his steals though... something to keep an eye on.

I'm sitting him this week for Arod. I wish he played yesterday. I'm taking a chance with ARod but I have a feeling he's gonna come back with a vengeance for the struggling Yanks.
