Counsell said, “we feel awful for him. That is the thing that is resonating with me. He is a special player of the team and it is a joy to watch him play for the team everyday. He is the best at what he does. Now, not being able to see that every day is not going to feel good.”

Don Mattingly, the manager of Miami Marlins said, “of course we feel awful as we all know what kind of a guy Christian is. You would hate to see player like him get hurt down the stretch, he has stepped in realm of superstars as a player and got the MVP title too last year. You also don’t want to see that happen for a team down the stretch.”
