ARLINGTON, Texas - Chicago Cubs third baseman Mark DeRosa left Wednesday night's game at Texas because of a left eye migraine that affected his sight for several minutes.
"DeRosa lost sight in his left eye for about 10 or 12 minutes. Completely," manager Lou Piniella said after the Cubs' 7-3 loss. "But he got his vision back in about 15 minutes. … But he's OK now. He should be able to go (Thursday)."
DeRosa made an error in the bottom of the first inning trying to backhand Sammy Sosa's grounder. When it was his turn to bat in the second inning, DeRosa was pinch-hit for by Cesar Izturis and DeRosa was seen in the dugout pointing toward his left eye while talking to a trainer.
The ball didn't hit DeRosa on his only defensive play.
