Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Forsythe, Kiermaier injury updates

KK and Frosty have the hardest contact of the night, and not in a good way.

The Rays lost a 1-0 pitcher's duel to the White Sox last night. It was a tough loss, because Jake Odorizzi pitched well, and the Rays got BABIP'd on some hard contact more than once. But the hardest contact of all came on this play between Logan Forsythe and Kevin Kiermaier.

Per Kevin Cash after the game, Forsythe has a bruised leg/hip, and they will be monitoring KK over next 24 hours.

That's not enough info for you? Yeah, me neither. Here's some tweets:

The good news as far as KK is concerned is that we're apparently not talking concussion, and everybody is saying the right, least threatening things right now. Still, if I were Taylor Motter and Mikie Mahtook, I'd make sure my phone was charged up.

So, yeah, all that "it's too early to panic" stuff we've been talking about? Well, maybe we dodged a bullet and avoided full-fledged hysteria-mode for another day. But regular ol' panic? Go ahead. There's no shame in it.


That's all we have for today. Go Rays, and get well, everybody!
