Paul DeJong will undergo an MRI on Thursday due to left side discomfort. DeJong felt something grab during Wednesday's game versus the Brewers when he reached to make a tag on Lorenzo Cain. In addition, the 27-year-old was hit by a pitch in that general area on Tuesday. More details should be available Thursday afternoon but it is a near certainty that DeJong misses at least one game.
