CHICAGO (AP) - All-Star outfielder Torii Hunter might want to shoo away his new shoes.
The Detroit right fielder left Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox in the eighth inning because of a sore left Achilles. Hunter says the problem was caused by dress shoes that were too tight.
``I'll be fine tomorrow. Just a little sore,'' Hunter said. ``I played through it the whole game. It happened this morning, but I'm fine. I'm fine.''
Hunter homered during Detroit's 7-4 loss.
He said he said he recently bought shoes that ``might have been a little tight on the Achilles.''
``A little sore the whole game,'' he said.
Hunter didn't say exactly when he bought the footwear. He was confident he would play Friday night at home against Philadelphia despite being listed as day to day.
