Pirates Announce Yoshi Tsutsugo Left Sunday’s Game With Neck Tightness

Published

on

During Sunday’s game against the Rays, first baseman Yoshi Tsutsugo exited the game due to “neck tightness,” as the Pirates put it. We were also told that if the injury occurred during the regular season, Tsutsugo would’ve been able to continue playing, but since it was spring training, they felt no need to let him continue.

Tsutsugo finished the day going 1-2 with a single and a strikeout. That single boosted Tsutsugo’s spring training average to .381 in 21 at-bats. Tsutsugo, along with his .381 average, has an OPS of 1.186, one home run, and three RBIs.

This Tsutsugo injury marked the second of the game, with Greg Allen also exiting the game with left hamstring tightness after the 2nd inning. Neither of the injuries appears to be too serious.
