Houston Astros pitcher Jake Odorizzi was stretchered off the field at Fenway Park on Monday night due to what the team called “lower left leg discomfort.”

Odorizzi threw a pitch to Kike Hernandez in the fifth inning of their game against the Boston Red Sox, and then started to make a move toward first base to cover after Hernandez hit a ground ball. Odorizzi, though, made just two steps before he collapsed on the infield grass, clearly in pain.

He was eventually helped up and onto a stretcher before he was wheeled off the field.

Specifics surrounding Odorizzi’s injury aren’t known, outside the Astros simply calling it “lower left leg discomfort.”

Boston led 2-1 when Odorizzi left, which was just one inning before the game was delayed due to rain. Odorizzi, 32, held a 3-2 record with a 3.38 ERA and 17 strikeouts entering Monday night’s contest. He had four strikeouts in five innings when he left, and was replaced by Phil Maton.
