Carmona has bruised forearm, is day to day
Fausto Carmona is listed as day to day with a bruised right forearm suffered in an intrasquad game today.
A liner off the bat of Damaso Espino pegged Carmona square in the forearm. Carmona immediately came out of the game.
According to head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff, X-rays on the arm were negative, so it appears nothing is broken. But Carmona’s condition will be monitored closely in the coming days.
You might remember CC Sabathia had a similar scare in his last exhibition start before the ’07 season, when a Reed Johnson liner hit him in the forearm. Sabathia recovered and was ready for Opening Day.
The Indians, obviously, are hoping Carmona recovers just as quickly, as they’ll be relying on him as their No. 2 starter.
