Wally Mansfield, the Newcastle reliever, was less than thrilled to learn that his recent injury would keep him out of the rest of the season and any postseason action.
“The playoffs?” he said. “Are you kidding me? The playoffs?”
Mansfield has a torn rotator cuff, an injury that has hampered him since 11/16/2016.
Newcastle is currently tied for first with Sydney, with a 21-9 win-loss record.
