Dodgers P Scott Kazmir leaves spring start as hip issue flares anew

Dodgers pitcher Scott Kazmir will be reevaluated Tuesday morning after he was forced from his start Monday with a sore left hip, an issue that dogged the lefthander in 2016.

One pitch into the second inning against the Rockies, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts went to the mound with a trainer and Kazmir was immediately pulled from his second outing of the spring, according to multiple reports.

“The frustration is through the roof right now,” he said (via the Los Angeles Times).

“From having that [oblique] injury, I think you can go back to what it felt like before when something happened,” Matheny said, via MLB.com . “Like he said, it [felt like] a precursor. That made him concerned that he better not let it go. He went in thinking it wasn’t that big of a deal and then realized that there’s something going on that he has to get to.”

Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported Pirates infielder Josh Harrison is the likely replacement for Carpenter on the WBC roster.

Cards’ trainers have given Carpenter a green light for work in the field at first base, but he is not swinging the bat. There is no timeline for his return to Grapefruit League games.

And that’s exactly the point Harris County judge Ed Emmett tried to make with the Texas Historical Commission during a recent hearing on the Astrodome.

“As a Texan, if you’re not going to designate Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping the Astrodome, other than the Alamo and the Capitol and some of those buildings, what are you ever going to designate?” Emmett said, via Click2Houston.com.
