ATLANTA (AP) -- Injury-prone pitcher Mike Hampton of the Atlanta
Braves left a minor-league rehabilitation start after only two
innings when he tweaked his groin.
Nick Skinner, public relations director for the Class AA
Mississippi Braves said, "He didn't want to take any chances with
it. He said his arm felt good."
Hampton injured the groin in the first inning Wednesday night,
then gave up a solo home run in the second. He threw 29 pitches,
walked one and fanned two.
It was his sixth rehab start. He hasn't pitched n a major league
game since August 2005 because of a series of injuries.
