New, 65 comments

Well, this isn't good news.

According to Marc Topkin's twitter it appears like Dioner Navarro suffered a serious leg injury after a collision at home plate with Jacque Jones of the Twins.

#Rays Navarro taken off field on cart, injury to left leg appears very serious based on how much pain he appeared to be in

John Jaso and Jose Lobaton better get ready for some more action this spring.

We'll post more updates when they become available.

Update: Navarro only has a bruised nerve in his leg and should not miss Opening Day according to Andrew Friedman.

Quote from Friedman on the injury via @TBO_Rays:

"It should not interfere with opening day."
