BREAKING NEWS: Eduardo Nunez Leaves Game After HBP In The Chest

I'd say April Fool's, but that would be neither timely nor funny.

Eduardo Nunez was just taken out of the game after apparently being hit by a pitch from Doug Fister in the chest.  Pretty much every beat writer with a Twitter account said he looked like he was in a tremendous amount of pain and he needed help getting off the field.  Jayson Nix was brought in to pinch run and now we get to wait around again for more injury updates.  Tough break for Nunez, who had gotten off to a pretty good start this season.  More on this story as it becomes available.

** UPDATE 2:35 PM- Via Bryan Hoch, Nunez's injury is being called a bruised right bicep.  X-rays were negative.  That's really good news considering the amount of pain he appeared to be in, so I would imagine this will be called a 'day-to-day' injury. **
