Tonight is the AFL All-Star game. The AFL returns to normal action on Saturday, when the Javelinas host the Saguaros.
By the way, Tom H. has an update from Arizona with the following injury notes:
- Jeremy Jeffress was diagnosed with shoulder fatigue but the team has decided he does not need to see a doctor. Are you serious? This guy is practically the only pitching prospect on the roster. If he says his shoulder hurts, he should see five doctors.
- Taylor Green is going to be fine following his broken nose and should play again any day now. Hopefully he saw a doctor.
- Angel Salome was diagnosed with rotator cuff irritation, which is why he hasn't played since October 8. It's unknown if he'll return to AFL action, but it seems doubtful.
- Alcides Escobar went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk for Lara.
- Also for Lara, Hernan Iribarren went 1-for-3, walked and was caught stealing.
- Brendan Katin busted out of his slump last night, going 2-for-3 with a walk, three runs scored and his second VWL HR. Two of his three VWL hits are home runs.
