Ex-Red Sox Slugger Kyle Schwarber Leaves Game With Unknown Injury

Schwarber was pulled after drawing a walk


August 11

After bolstering the Boston Red Sox 2021 roster at the Major League Baseball trade deadline for the playoff run that fell just short of a World Series berth, Kyle Schwarber latched on with the Philadelphia Phillies. He’s been a massive part of their current run but mysteriously exited their matchup with the Miami Marlins on Thursday.

The Phillies are 9-1 in their last ten games and are riding a seven-game winning streak that was just put into jeopardy. In the fifth inning, Schwarber drew a walk and then was replaced from the game without any sign of injury. Given the 1-0 deficit with two outs in the fifth inning, it would not make any sense to pinch run for the 29-year-old All-Star.

Nobody seemed to know exactly what happened, but he’ll be shelved for the remainder of the Phillies-Marlins game Thursday with a win streak on the line.
