Travis Buck Leaves Game After Being Hit By Pitch

The Indians are losing outfielders on a daily basis it seems, and the hits keep on coming tonight in Minnesota where Travis Buck was forced out of the game in the 5th inning when he was hit in the head by a Francisco Liriano pitch. Buck was only in the game because Michael Brantley was scratched from the lineup with a stomach illness.

Luis Valbuena, whose natural position is 2nd base, entered the game for Buck and played left field. The Indians are already without Shin-soo Choo and Grady Sizemore.
