Fortunately, there will be no lasting damage to the Orioles after two more HBPs from the Red Sox on Sunday.
“So far, so good,” manager Buck Showalter told MLB.com. “We will keep an ear out the next couple days and see if they progressively get better to tell you that nothing else is going on there. … We may have dodged a bullet. But for Vlady to come out of a ballgame, he’s pretty sore.”
It sounds like both Reynolds and Vlad should be ready to play when the second half starts on Thursday. Showalter, though, isn’t completely content with the way things ended up Sunday. He didn’t feel that either of Weiland’s HBPs today were intentional, but he did think that John Lackey drilled Derrek Lee on purpose Saturday.
“I know the umpires are trying, I just wish they would have issued the warnings before the game started,” Showalter said, “because Lackey should have been thrown out of the game for hitting Lee. That was intentional as it gets. [It will] be interesting to see if they hand down any punishment for Lackey.”
