Geoff Geary gave up five runs in two-thirds of an inning on Wednesday, and later, manager Cecil Cooper expressed concern that there may be something wrong with the reliever, health-wise.
“I’m not real sure what’s going on there,” Cooper said. “We’ve got to check him out. He’s been battling some bicep tendinitis a little bit. Maybe that’s why he’s having the problems he’s been having. He is not the same guy he was a year ago.”
Cooper was vague as to what steps the club will take to investigate the problem, but an examination by team doctors could be in his future.
“We don’t know yet,” Cooper said. “We’re trying to make those decisions now. As soon as we know, we’ll tell you. We’ve got to make sure we figure it out and find out what’s going on.”
