Cory Mazzoni left game one after 1.2 innings with a right knee injury. Per Lynn Worthy in the Press & Sun Bulletin:
Mazzoni left the first game after telling Lopez he heard a pop in his knee with one out in the fourth after throwing 11⁄3 innings. Lopez and trainer Matt Hunter visited the mound, and Mazzoni threw one warm-up pitch before leaving.
I’m no doctor, but a pop does not sound good.
In game two, Noah Syndergaard was pitch-count limited to allow him to throw in Sunday’s All-Star Futures game. His line: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 19 strikes/30 pitches. That’s a nice tune-up.
A day after playing the Eastern League All-Star Game, 22-year-old Cesar Puello (.328/.390/.570 – 70 gms) was 1-for-4 with a walk in game one and 3-for-4 with two RBI in game two.
