Not sure what happened either :( I have him on my team and noticed he was out in the 4th when I turned the game on.

Then I checked the stats and said he only pitched 1 1/3.

Wonder what happened

Niemann exits after comebacker hits shoulder
Right-hander had retired the first four batters he faced

ST. PETERSBURG -- Jeff Niemann left Thursday night's game against Baltimore after taking a shot off his right shoulder.

Miguel Tejada, leading off the Orioles' second against the 6-foot-9 right-hander, hit a ball up the middle that caught Niemann square on the back of the shoulder. The ball then ricocheted to Carlos Pena at first for the unusual 1-3 putout.

Niemann appeared to be in some pain, bending at the waist before being tended to on the mound by a contingent of trainers and manager Joe Maddon. After Niemann threw several pitches, Maddon signaled for Andy Sonnanstine to come into the game.

Niemann threw 12 pitches, 10 for strikes, and had retired each of the four hitters he faced. He was making his first start of the season after leading the team in wins in 2009, when he went 13-6 with a 3.94 ERA in his rookie season ... sp&c_id=tb
