Pudge leaves with back pain

By Jason Beck / MLB.com

 

DETROIT -- Tigers catcher Ivan Rodriguez left Thursday's game against the White Sox after two innings with upper back spasms.

There was no particular play in which the injury became noticeable. He grounded out to end the first inning and didn't have to make a throw from behind the plate. Once the second inning ended, he stayed in the dugout while Mike DiFelice grabbed his catching gear and took his place.

 

Pudge has taken a beating behind the plate over the past several days. He has been battling a hip flexor injury since the Tigers' last homestand, though he said it only affects him when he has to block pitches in the dirt. He was in pain Tuesday in Cleveland when a pitch hit Grady Sizemore in the foot, bounced up and hit Pudge in his right ribs underneath his arm.

 

"He got beat up," manager Alan Trammell said. "Foul tips, the ball that hit him in the ribs. He doesn't complain, though. He's a tough guy, no question. He's not going to tell you something unless it's really, really bothering him."

 

The Tigers initially listed Rodriguez as day-to-day. The 11-time All-Star has played in 99 of the Tigers' 102 games this season, 91 of them behind the plate. At least twice since the All-Star break, he has told Trammell he wanted to play after the skipper had planned on giving him a day off.

Pudge was not hurt last year at all, not even a quiver. Our training and medical staff are excellent, but they never get the credit. Pudge went one season without trouble after several very bad years for his back. The next season, you see the back trouble return to bother him.
