Last night, Reds’ pitcher Brandon Finnegan exited the game after wincing through a pitch in the third inning. A trainer came out to check on him and immediately brought him into the clubhouse for further examination. He didn’t look comfortable in his walk from the mound to the dugout.

The was Finnegan’s first start after coming off of the 60-day disabled list for a teres major strain, a muscle near the shoulder. If this is a potential setback, it’s good the Reds have caught it in time before another 60-day DL stint. Hopefully Finnegan will be okay and the Reds can have some stability in their pitching rotation.
