All right, it's time to knock this stuff off.

Shin-Soo Choo, the hero of Tuesday's 7-5 victory over Seattle in the first game of a day night doubleheader, was swinging in the batting cage before Wednesday's game when he felt soreness in his left side. He was scratched from a already depleted Indians lineup just before game time on Wednesday.

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but when a hitter says his side hurts, that's usually an oblique injury. Translated: significant downtime.
