"Months ago I would feel like a random sharp pain, usually getting out of bed or something irrelevant to the game of baseball," Lyons said. "Probably about a month ago I started feeling it more often throughout my regular day. A couple of weeks after that I started feeling it a little more when I would throw and play catch and it would become more frequent."
The pain became more pronounced last weekend at Miami.
"That was one of the first times I felt it actually when I was pitching," Lyons said. "I almost felt it a little more when I was playing catch that day. I think when I was in the game the adrenaline [took over.] That night was the first time just walking away from the stadium it was like, 'wow,' because this doesn't feel very good."
