Re: Chapman pulled from Game Today with Stiff Back
At the beginning of the inning I was saying to myself, "The way Chapman's pitching he's going to throw out his back." His pitching motion didn't look normal. He had a weird motion to his pitching. Turns out he was adjusting for having already thrown out his back, but I didn't recognize it was that. All the professionals did, obviously though. He'll be OK. Again, just one more reason why they're going to start him in the minors for two months, so they can monitor his early growth in a controlled environment.
