Last night, the Houston Astros starting pitcher Jack O’Donoghue was forced to withdraw early from the game against the Boston Red Sox due to discomfort under his left foot.
But the drama in which he was hurt looks worse than just discomfort.
Enrique Hernandez hit the ground ball to first baseman Yuli Guriel and Odorizi went to cover the bag, but fell just a few steps away from the mound.
The guerrillas themselves took it out, but Odorigi had to go off the field on a stretcher.
The Astros are still waiting to hear more, but the Houston Chronicle’s Chandler rumor has it from Rome manager Dusty Baker that Odorizi was wearing crutches and boots, but he’s going for an MRI today.
Dusty Baker says Jack Odorizi is on crutches and boots, but in good spirits. She is going to have an MRI tomorrow.

Wait on Astros MRI
You must hope it is nothing more than a slight discomfort, but it looked worse than that.
The good thing is that Odorizi is in good spirits, which tells us that he is probably feeling right about things.
But it’s still bad news whenever a player falls down and can’t get up and has to get on the field on a stretcher.
Odorizzi closed off a bad start this year, but his last four starts seem to have turned the corner.
He is 3-2 with a 3.13 ERA in seven starts.
It was a tough night for Odorizi, who played five innings and allowed two runs in a 6-3 fall in Boston on Monday night due to injury.
Today, an MRI will determine whether Odorizi is on the injured list.
It certainly looked a lot worse than just discomfort.
