Injury Scout - Jim Wolf's Early Exit in Detroit

3B Umpire Jim Wolf departed Friday's Indians-Tigers game in Detroit during the first inning for an undisclosed reason.

Wolf exited the field between the top and bottom of the 1st, shaking hands with Tigers 3B Coach Dave Clark as a quick hi-bye while walking off the field. FOX Sports Detroit broadcasters Matt Shepard and Kirk Gibson noted that Wolf appeared to walk with a limp on his way off the field.

2B Umpire Sam Holbrook shifted to the third base position in Wolf's absence, with 1B Umpire Manny Gonzalez and HP Umpire Dan Iassogna remaining in their original spots to round out the three-umpire crew.

Relevant Injury History: None, although Wolf left a game on May 31, 2019 after a hit to the head.
