Ian Kennedy has Numbness in Fingers

Just spotted this on Mike Silva's Baseball Digest - Ian Kennedy left his Monday start for Scranton due to numbness in his fingers. Scranton beat writer Chad Jennings reported late last night that there was no concrete medical findings as of yet.

Any Yankees fan over the age of 12 will of course recall David Cone going through this in 1996. That turned out to be an aneurysm. We're in no way saying that's the case here. But clearly there is a circulatory issue. It's not uncommon for pitchers who throw split finger fastballs to experience numbness. Jeff Robinson of the '80s Detroit Tigers comes to mind.

Hopefully this turns out to be nothing. We'll keep you posted.
