Seibu Lions: Jose Fernandez twists left ankle

by on Oct.06, 2010 @ 3:37 pm, under NPB

Jose Fernandez started at first and batted fourth in a Phoenix League game earlier today and ended up leaving in the 2nd on defense due to an injury he suffered to his left ankle during pre-game practice.  Fortunately for the Seibu Lions, the injury doesn't seem to be serious -- the chief trainer told reporters Fernandez just tweaked his left ankle and would likely be ok.

Incidentally, it seems Fernandez hit a 2-run homer in his first at bat.
