And they just keep coming. Phillies right fielder Hunter Pence has been scratched from Monday's lineup due to an apparent left arm injury. While the severity is presently unknown, pending a medical examination, we can take some comfort in the fact that there may at least be some explanation for his recent struggles. What's that? He suffered the injury while hilariously and grittily and fan favorite-ily diving for a ball in Sunday's game in San Diego? Never mind.
Thanks to Ryan Lawrence, et als., for the report.
