Wily Mo Pena had to leave Saturday’s game in the middle of the second inning with tightness in his left quadriceps.
Pena was not injured.
“He said he had stiffness, almost like cramps,” trainer Mark Mann said. “He also complained of stiffness in his hip flexor. That led us to believe it might be a hydration issue.”
The Reds will re-evaluate Pena today. If he was just dehydrated, he could be back in the lineup quickly.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
