Paronto and his hamstring

Chad Paronto left last night's 7-4 loss in the 7th inning thanks to a strained left hamstring:

"It felt like it pulled and just was all knotted up. There's a giant knot back there now. I told [head athletic trainer] Nate [Lucero] that's really the first leg injury I've ever had in my career. It's one of those things. I don't know if I slipped or what it was. I saw the pitch and then I planted my foot and after that... They said Jamie had a problem [with footing], too, so I don't know."

Will he pitch again this year?

"I don't know what they'll tell me, but I plan on being out there tomorrow. I don't know if that's realistic or not, but that's the way I'm going to approach it. I know it's going to be sore, but with [five] days left, what the heck?"

I think that's a short-sighted decision.
