Update on Bailey
It’s really hard to speculate on the extent of Andrew Bailey’s injury right now. The A’s announced he left the game with elbow discomfort, but Geren said after the game he “felt tightness in the forearm area.” He’ll be checked out as soon as possible, though Geren wasn’t certain if he’d be examined by a doctor today or tomorrow. The A’s skipper said Bailey had been experiencing normal soreness that creeps up during Spring Training, but that they believed he was ready to go today. Geren also noted that his velocity was good – said he even hit 94. But, “anytime you see someone leave the game with tightness, it’s concerning.” Hopefully more answers will come shortly.
