Update: Billingsley’s leg not feeling good

Joe Torre suggested the injury that ended pitcher Chad Billingsley’s night in the sixth inning against the Braves Friday didn’t appear serious, at least after an initial evaluation.

Billingsley suffered a mild strain in his left hamstring legging out a single, and was pulled from the game to start the top of the seventh.

Billingsley will be re-evaluated Saturday, and while he didn’t dispute what Torre said, he sounded slightly less convincing about the severity of the injury.

When asked how he felt, he resounded: “Not good at all.”

Billingsley added he didn’t think the injury was serious, but he was in obvious discomfort by the time reporters spoke to him after the game.
