Happ Leaves For "Precautionary Reasons"
Phillies left-hander J.A .Happ, who missed his last two starts with a strained right intercostal muscle, has left the game after three innings for what the Phillies termed “precautionary reasons.”
Happ appeared to tweak something — the same muscle? — when Nate McLouth grounded out in the third inning. After a lengthy discussion on the mound and after throwing a couple practice pitches, Happ remained in the game. He allowed a solo home run to Martin Prado before getting out of the inning.
We will have more info after the game.
