Quick hit: Cervelli to the DL

It was just announced that Francisco Cervelli will be placed on the 15-day DL before tomorrow’s night game and it will be retroactive to today. An MRI revealed a Grade 2 right hamstring strain which he suffered on that reviewed play in the fourth inning of last night’s game. The recovery time for that kind of injury is 4-6 weeks.

Reliever Shane Greene was optioned to Triple A and Austin Romine will more than likely replace Cervelli.

Sigh…
