HOUSTON (AP) -Houston Astros shortstop Adam Everett injured his right leg in a collision with teammate Carlos Lee in the fourth inning against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday.
Everett was backpedaling to left field to chase a fly ball when Lee came forward and slid into him, crashing into his right leg and sending him to the ground. Neither player came up with the ball.
Lee got up immediately, but Everett remained on his hands and knees and writhed in pain until trainers reached the outfield. He was picked up, placed on a cart and taken for X-rays.
Mark Loretta moved from third base to shortstop and Morgan Ensberg came in at third base.
