Sunday, Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence injured his shoulder in a baseball game. Monday, because of the injury, Pence had to miss a baseball game. The Phillies were calling Pence day-to-day, but to be sure, they scheduled Pence for a Tuesday MRI. Or Pence scheduled himself for a Tuesday MRI, or Pence's agent scheduled him for a Tuesday MRI. Whatever the case, Tuesday, Hunter Pence had an MRI on his shoulder to check for damage. Good news!

That's Hunter Pence in the Phillies' Tuesday lineup. So Hunter Pence isn't badly injured, if he's even still injured at all. I guess he and the Phillies aren't entirely out of the woods - Pence could aggravate whatever he did, or maybe the MRI missed something - but odds are that Pence is fine, unlike so many of his critical teammates. Look at that lineup. Look at it. Look at it. Ewwww.
