According to Beisbol Invernal:
Los Criollos, asimismo, vieron salir del terreno de juego con supuestas molestias en la espalda en el segundo episodio a su valioso ‘infielder’, Alex Cora, quien anoche comenzó en la defensa de la antesala. Fue reemplazado por Danny González.
I *think* that means Alex Cora left the ballgame in the second inning with back pain. This is not good news for the Mets’ top free agent signing of the winter. Generally, back problems don’t go away — they become more chronic and debilitating over time. Ask Joe Crede, Eric Chavez, or your old man. Though, it’s quite possible that this back issue is a minor one — or that my translation skills are inadequate.
