According to Reds' TV team, he left today's game with left knee inflammation. He left as a precautionary measure, and is receiving further testing and evaluation now.
He'll be fine, he's Canadian. They all have mutant healing powers like Wolverine.
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."

"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.

That's an amazing statement."
