Lopez Leaves With Injury

Rodrigo Lopez was removed after five innings due to inflammation in his right shoulder.  Lopez started feeling tightness in the fifth, and the velocity of his fastball dropped down to 82 mph.

“Like when the muscles are really, really tired, where it starts to bother you — that’s the way I felt,” he said.

Feeling “uncomfortable”  Lopez wanted to play it safe and avoid a long term injury.  After the game, Lopez said he felt better and no tests have been scheduled at this time.
