Felix Hernandez Leaves Game with Tight Quad

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez was taken out of his start versus the Oakland Athletics, Sunday, after experiencing tightness in his right quadriceps muscle.

The decision to remove Hernandez from the game was described as precautionary by the Mariners.

Hernandez had allowed eight hits, three earned runs and two walks while striking out one.

Despite being behind 3-0 when Hernandez left the game, the Mariners rallied and ended up winning in 10 innings 8-7 over the Athletics.

Hernandez receives a no-decision in the victory, meaning he hasn't lost a game at the Oakland Coliseum since 2009.

The former Cy Young Award winner was brilliant in his first start of this season: he pitched seven innings against the Los Angeles Angels, allowing two hits, one earned run, and one walk while striking out 10.

Verlander Leaves Game with Triceps Injury

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images (DUNEDIN, Fla.) -- Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander left his spring training start against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, with cramping in his right triceps.

Despite leaving the game in the third inning, the former American League MVP doesn't seem too concerned about the injury. He cites not drinking enough water and a tweak in his mechanics as being possible reasons for the cramping.

"I don't think I'm injured," Verlander said. "The only concern I have is if it would linger. Just felt crampy."

Verlander pitched 2 2/3 innings of one-hit ball before exiting.

"Not overly concerned," Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus said. "He said it felt like more of a cramp than a strain. It doesn't mean we're out of the woods. It's not as concerning of an area."

Halladay Leaves Game Early with Shoulder Soreness

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay pitched two-innings versus the St. Louis Cardinals, before leaving due to shoulder soreness.

Halladay allowed four runs in the first inning before pitching a perfect second.

Halladay had experienced the shoulder pain during his previous start versus the Nationals, but continued to pitch.

He cut back on the amount he threw between then and know, but it didn't seem to help.

"Worried? Yeah, definitely I'm concerned," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "Yeah, I'm worried. Our pitching is one of the big things on our club, and when guys miss a turn, yeah, that concerns me."

Halladay says he expects to be examined on Tuesday.

This season the 35-year-old has a record of 4-5, with a 3.98 ERA and 56 strikeouts.
