Hunter Pence, who was scheduled to have a precautionary MRI today, took to Twitter to assure the fans that he is OK
"Knee is feeling great everyone," he tweeted. "Thanks for your concern. Excited to get back at it today. No complacency."
Pence, who had two hits in Game 1 yesterday against Washington despite a noticeable hitch in his gait, wanted Charlie Manuel to keep him in the lineup for the nightcap. The training staff requested otherwise.
“Our doctors and our trainers checked him out and our trainer came back and said he’d prefer him not to play in the second game,” Manuel said. “Hunter was wanting to play.”
