Al Leiter former New York Mets pitcher and current MLB Network analyst even tossed out Astros’ righty Lance McCullers when mentioning Bukauskas.
The Astros would announce later in the game, Reddick left with a mild concussion, not further updates were made available.
The game would not get any prettier for the Astros as the Angels kept scoring off of anyone Hinch put in the game to stop the bleeding.
The Angels offense didn’t stop with Peacock out of the game, in fact, they kept pressing on.
Danny Salazar who had a 5.66 ERA coming into the game, would hold the Astros to three earned runs over 5.2 innings of work.
Hinch is not sure exactly when McCann suffered his concussion, but shared that during Sunday night baseball against the New York Yankees he was on the receiving end of a pitch that shook him up.
Jokingly before the charity classic, Lechler shared, that he hopes in eight years when he finally retires Watt will bring him back for the softball game.
While Watt is coming off two back surgeries last season, he declared himself A-Ok Saturday night.
During the season it’s all business, but for a few hours Saturday night, the team took the field to have fun, hang out and play a game most of them only play once a year when it’s time for the classic again.
While J.J. Watt has many sacks still left in him, the three-time defensive player of the year might already have a job waiting for him for whenever decides to hang up his cleats.
