Farnsworth, quien lanzó desde 1999 a 2014 para nueve equipos diferentes, escribió que si un jugador no podía jugar con ningún tipo de dolor, no debería estar en el béisbol.
“So I just saw that a MLB player didn’t play today because of general soreness. Me estás tomando el pelo. It’s September. Everyone is sore. If you can’t play through soreness, you shouldn’t be playing the sport. SMH!” el tuiteó.
While Farnsworth didn’t mention a name in his tweet, many on social media pointed out it may have been about Baltimore Orioles star Trey Mancini. The first baseman is playing his first season in the majors since he was diagnosed and beat stage 3 colon cáncer.
Farnsworth was routinely ripped on the app.
Mancini has played in 128 games and is hitting .262 con 21 jonrones. He’s in line for a Comeback Player of the Year award due to his performance this season.
The Orioles are 49-93.
