Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, dealing with renewed soreness in his chronically sore left knee, will undergo an MRI exam on Thursday to determine if he’s dealing with something more debilitating.
Hamilton has had two surgeries on each knee and regularly receives injections of synthetic lubricating fluid to ease the strain on the knees caused by the removal of some cartilage.
“I’m not sure,” Hamilton said Thursday when asked if he was concerned. “This feels a little more ...
The Marlins intend to place Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list but were relieved to learn the pitcher has a right biceps strain and not a major injury that would require surgery.
As a result, it’s possible Fernandez could pitch again this season.
“I’d like to see him pitch. I think he wants to pitch, in talking with him [Sunday] morning,” manager Dan Jennings said of the likelihood Fernandez could take the mound before the end of the season.
Fernandez returned Saturday to ...
This isn’t good.
Marlins ace Jose Fernandez is dealing with stiffness in his right shoulder and has returned to Miami to see a doctor, the Miami Herald’s Clark Spencer reports (Twitter links). The nature and severity of the injury are unclear. “Let’s see what it is before we speculate on something,” says Marlins manager Dan Jennings.
The most incredible thing I’ve seen in a while.
Wright was in uniform with the team early last month for three games in San Diego, at which time he told reporters he unequivocally expected to return this season. Wright has been visiting with Watkins every Monday, at which time the doctor and patient review a checklist and a workout is prescribed for the upcoming week.
Wright said he was told early on that surgery wouldn’t be an option — unless he was careless in his rehab and the condition worsened.
“From the moment I was diagnosed ...
What an awful injury.
At 3:15 p.m. CDT Thursday, Mike Dahl said his son was in surgery.
“They’re trying to save the spleen,” Dahl said. “There was a collision between him and the second baseman, and he took a knee to the spleen. They’re just trying to save it now. He got hit in the face, the nose, the spleen, a bunch of different places, but that’s the main thing right now. He probably has a minor concussion, I would imagine, because he doesn’t remember much about what happened. No broken bones ...
His fantasy owners and Cardinals fans surely shed a tear at this news. I know I did.
[Matt] Adams, who had an MRI on Wednesday, said, “The results came back worse than what we were expecting. The timetable is three to four months. If things go well then, hopefully, I’ll be able to get back at the end of the season.
“It was just something that needed to be done. There’s a torn tendon in there that needs to be repaired. It’s a tough break. It’s not what I wanted.”
Stenosis? I hardly know her.
UPDATE: Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that Wright has been diagnosed with stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column. That doesn’t sound good. The Mets believe that the injury will heal, but there’s no timetable. They probably can’t count on him anytime soon.
2:50 p.m. ET: Rough news for the Mets here, as Marc Carig of New York Newsday reports that David Wright has been shut down for another week due to continued back issues.
Derek Holland never looked right on the mound for the Texas Rangers in their home opener. Now he won’t be back there for at least six weeks—and maybe more.
Outfielders Shin-Soo Choo (back spasms) and Ryan Rua (sprained right ankle) also made early exits because of injuries. Choo was feeling better afterward, but Rua had a protective boot on his foot and could be headed to the disabled list.
Chris Sale sustained an avulsion fracture on the lateral side of his right foot in an accident at his home on Friday. The left-hander is expected to be sidelined three weeks before resuming baseball activities, according to the White Sox.
