I don't know if AC is tweaked or not but Dusty's explanation probably wasn't valid and I don't really see the drop in velocity that would freak someone out.
Personally, I just thought his spike stuck in the dirt and he just tweeked his ankle a bit. He immediately looked down at it and walked around a bit. Grimaced initially too. Much ado about nothing IMO.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
