McClellan update

Kyle McClellan did indeed turn his ankle in Tuesday night’s win over the Brewers, and he was in fact removed before throwing another pitch. However, McClellan downplayed the condition, and manager Tony La Russa said that McClellan was coming out at that point regardless of what happened with his ankle.


“I just rolled it, just like in basketball,” McClellan said. “It was more of a shock than anything. it’s a little tender, but it’s one of those that you’ve just got to walk it off.”


La Russa explained that once there was a baserunner in the last inning, McClellan was coming out and Octavio Dotel was coming in to finish off the game. That is borne out by the fact that Dotel was warming up before McClellan twisted his ankle.
