Today the LA times reported that Figgins will not need to go on the DL. His MRI showed just a mild strain to his right hamstring. According to Chone, the injury was caused by a collision he had with the umpire on his amazing slide at home plate. "If I didn't hit the umpire, we wouldn't be talking about this," Figgins said. "This has happened before. Every time I do that slide, I seem to hit the umpire. It's a freak thing."
Mike Scioscia expects the league to review the play to rule on whether or not the home plate umpire was to close to the play and caused the collision that led to this hamstring injury.
