Casey Kotchman was seen being taken out of the clubhouse on a stretcher this afternoon. He was taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons with what is being described as “tightness in his chest.” Johnny Damon described the situation as “scary.” Marc Topkin has the details.

Kotchman, who was originally in the lineup, has been scratched. Sean Rodriguez has been moved to first base and Reid Brignac has been inserted into the lineup and will play shortstop.



  1. Gus says:

    Get well Kotch. He's been huge and a great hometown story.

  2. Sarah says:

    So much for the "Rays are under no pressure" claim. Casey, I hope it's just heartburn.

    Was happy to hear that Casey was sent home after all tests were negative.
