A's closer Treinen exits after being hit by comebacker

Oakland Athletics closer Blake Treinen left Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers after being hit in the right leg by a sharp line drive off the bat of Choo Shin-soo.

Treinen, who entered the contest allowing one run all season, hurled a sinker for the first and only pitch of Choo's eighth-inning at-bat.

Choo's hit went for an infield single and Treinen had a noticeable limp as he left what was likely a five-out save opportunity.

According to A's manager Bob Melvin, Treinen could return as soon as Friday.
