More on Felix

Here’s what Felix had to say after the game:
“I’m going to pitch next time. You know I’m not going to come out if it’s not too bad. But it was bad. I wanted to pitch. I wanted to stay in the game. I threw one (practice) pitch. It hurt bad. Now I’m fine.I’m going to be ready to throw my next outing.”
Here’s what Riggleman had to say after the game:
“You hate to see anything happen to him, but the news is pretty good. The x-rays were negative. It’s a slight sprain. We hope we can get him back out there as soon as possible, and he’s already saying he’s not going to miss a start. Rick Griffin (the trainer) is pretty encouraged. Felix may miss a couple of days off his next start. We’re not thinking DL at all. With the x-ray being negative, and an off day coming up, we have a chance to move his next start way toward the other end. The DL is not something we’re thinking about right now. But sometimes, when it gets tender, in a few days you have to re-evaluate that.”
