Who says the Home Run Derby doesn’t have a negative effect on your swing?

Chris Davis home run derby blister

In the second round of Monday’s Home Run Derby, Orioles slugger Chris Davis popped a blister on his right hand and began bleeding through his batting gloves. Crush taped up the wound and continued batting through the remainder of the round.

Afterward he told the Baltimore Sun’s Dan Connolly that he deals with blisters about once a year and doesn’t expect it to affect him during the All-Star Game or the remainder of the season.

  1. I think a couple of you fellas were worrying on the podcast about some negative affects of the HR Derby on Crush. I hope this doesn’t linger around in the second half of the season.

    • Don’t worry MGW , I’m sure Davis will rub some ‘clear’ on it and make it all better……………..
