Silva update — injury not believed serious

Just came back up from the clubhouse, where the word was that Silva’s injury is not believed to be major. In fact, Silva flat-out stated, “I will make my next start.”
He said he tweaked his thigh when his spikes caught while making a pickoff attempt on Brian Roberts in the sixth. He finished the inning (giving up the only two runs he allowed), but alerted the bench of the problem after the inning. They let him start the seventh, but didn’t like what they saw when he walked the first hitter, and took him out.
“It’s not bad,” Silva said. “It’s hard to come out of the game, but sometimes you have to be smart. It’s only my fifth start. There’s a long way to go.”
Here’s what McLaren said: “It’s nothing serious. He felt something in his leg driving off so we took him out. It doesn’t seem to be serious at all…I’m hearing good things from the training room.”
