Lowrie’s Left-Handed Launch a Pain - Full Count

Never mind my idea of the grimace being Jed trying to will the ball over the fence. It is impressive that he's finding ways to work through it though. Hopefully, once the playoffs are done, he can get some rest, with some checkups to make sure the wrist actually heals itself.
