FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Manny Delcarmen had an ice pack on his right knee and won't throw for a couple of days, but he said he's fine after slipping on the wet grounds at City of Palms Park while trying to turn a double-play and leaving the game in the seventh inning.
"I just slipped a little bit on the mound ... I have a little bit of tendinitis on my knees anyway, so anytime I slip, it might flare it up a little bit ... but I'm good. They probably won't let me throw for a couple of days."
Francona said he took him out for precautionary reasons and because he wasn't going to jeopardize any more to the wet conditions.
