The Injury Bug Crawls Down to Toledo

Whatever bad juju the Detroit Tigers seem to have picked up at the beginning of this season may have found its way down I-75 to the top farm club, as well.  Pitcher Macay McBride, whom the Tigers were converting from reliever to starter, left last night's game against the Durham Bulls after the first inning with pain in his elbow.  And today, the Mud Hens placed him on the 15-day disabled list. 

The Freep's Jon Paul Morosi reports that McBride will undergo a MRI exam today or tomorrow in Detroit to determine the extent of the damage.

One possible bit of good news from the game, however, was reliever Clay Rapada pitching three hitless innings (striking out three batters in the process).  Rapada dealt with his own injury troubles during the spring, nursing a sore shoulder.  In just 1/3 of an inning, he allowed two hits and two walks.
