Yesterday, Shin-Soo Choo did not start against the Dodgers, but he did come into the game to pinch hit in the 7th inning. Choo got hit by a pitch, and then stole second base.
During Choo’s slide into second, he injured his ankle. “My foot stuck on the base, my body kept going” Choo said to the Inquirer’s John Fay.
While Choo doesn’t think the injury is serious, he will get the day off tonight against the Padres so he has more time to heal.
Dusty Baker says Choo is “day-to-day”, but Choo isn’t ruling out playing tonight; “Maybe I’ll be able to play late in the game. I taped it. I’ll see how it feels and talk to Dusty”
