Did Howie Kendrick Check His Phone In The Middle Of The Game?

This was the theory on Twitter last night after someone caught this video of Howie Kendrick discretely pulling something out of his back pocket and looking at it out in left field.

Take a look at the video for yourself.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if that was his phone. I’m actually more surprised this is the first time we’ve seen this. Baseball can real boring, real fast and when there’s more standing around than actually doing anything (especially in the outfield), I would’ve thought more guys would be sliding into the DM’s of that city’s side chick.

There’s also this theory, which┬áis actually logical but ruins all of our fun.

I choose to believe it was his phone.
