He just showed up to the game in crutches and is going to be put on the DL because of a bruised knee. Apparently after his abortion of a relief appearance last night (7 R in 1 IP), he kicked a mechanical fan in the dugout and it fell and bruised his knee.
Farnsworth is one of the greatest examples of a guy who has incredible stuff (throws 99/100 MPH fastball and has really sharp breaking balls), but has ZERO control. What a headcase. Cubs fans have been calling for his head this year and now hes finally out of their hair (for at least 2 weeks)
