#1 I understand if you guys feel its a story von lebaobei123 24.04.2019 04:24

ST. PETERSBURG – Minutes after his Blue Jays toughed out an 8-5 victory over the division rival Rays, general manager Alex Anthopoulos stood with assembled media in the bowels of Tropicana Field, incredulous over the degree to which Adam Linds fractured right foot had become a topic of conversation. "I just think there isnt a whole lot going on in the city right now and on an off day it was a story," said Anthopoulos. Perhaps Anthopoulos has a point. Then again, it was Lind who volunteered that he underwent an MRI on Tuesday in Anaheim at the behest of his mother, who was among those concerned about her sons foot, which took the brunt of a foul ball on June 14 in Baltimore. It was Lind whod suggested he would miss the next six to eight weeks, leaving observers to ponder how the club would hold up without a middle-of-the-order, left-handed bat that has spent the season destroying right-handed pitching. Anthopoulos moved to clarify the timeframe. He said Lind had begun to feel improvement in his foot in late June but that while running on an extra-base hit in the July 2 win over Milwaukee, the pain worsened. Linds level of discomfort increased during the series in Oakland – he played the first two games at first base and was forced to chase down a number of pop ups in O.co Coliseums vast foul territory – and it was during the Jays stay in Northern California that the club began considering sending Lind for an MRI. "We knew that if it ever plateaued or if it went backwards that we would get an MRI but you dont do that unless it gets to that point," said Anthopoulos. "You dont MRI everybody all the time when there are plenty of guys who have issues." The imaging took place on Tuesday in Anaheim. Thats when the fracture of the metatarsal was discovered. It was confirmed by Dr. Robert Anderson, a Charlotte, North Carolina foot specialist, who also verified Linds late July or early August return to action. Lind will spend the next week, approximately, in a walking boot. The club decided not to make Lind available for comment on Friday night, as was the original plan. Hed rejoined the team on the Gulf Coast and maintains a residence in the area. While it didnt seem like one at the time, not to mention its strangely uncommon for an athlete to mention his mother in the context Lind did on Wednesday, Anthopoulos wrote of Linds comment as a joke. "You guys know Adam," said Anthopoulos. "Nice, easy going guy, funny in his own way. I dont think he thought anything of anything. It just, he even says today, I cant believe we have to talk about this. I kind of feel the same way. I understand if you guys feel its a story than it is a story." Addressing Linds six-to-eight week self diagnosis, Anthopoulos said the club, not a player, releases injury information to avoid such confusion. He speculated Lind lost something in translation. "Whether the doctor didnt specify from the time of the injury, whether Adam just heard six-to-eight weeks, I dont know," said Anthopoulos. "Again, all I would say is, you guys have been covering the team for a long time, Id say almost every single time injury news comes from the team. If we know were getting an opinion and were not commenting until we get all the information (because) theres just no point." Anthopoulos assured Lind isnt in trouble. "No ones upset at him, no ones mad," said Anthopoulos. "Someone was telling me about having apologies or things like that. I mean, this took on a life of its own thats not even, I just think its a non-story." It will be a non-story soon. Time goes by; these things tend to die down. What cant be denied: Linds bat will be badly missed until the Blue Jays get it back.

The Pirates designated the 35-year-old veteran for assignment Thursday, less than 24 hours after Rodriguez gave up six runs in 1 2-3 innings in a 9-8 victory over Baltimore. "In our mind we felt best served to cut ties because in my mind Im thinking, You know what? Ive seen guys of his ilk pitch backwards and recreate themselves. ... We didnt feel that was our best option," manager Clint Hurdle said. "Hes healthy his arm is healthy. He said it best, Sometimes you give everything you got and its not good enough." Rodriguez was 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in six starts this season. He spent time on the disabled list earlier in the year with a right knee inflammation. Though he insisted the knee was "OK" after his poor outing on Wednesday, Rodriguez allowed he was frustrated by his ineffectiveness. The Pirates plan to fill Rodriguezs spot in the rotation with either right-hander Brandon Cumpton or left-hander Jeff Locke, an unlikely All-Star a year ago. Cumpton is 0-1 with a 4.26 ERA in two starts with Pittsburgh this season and has been dominant at Triple-A Indianapolis, where he is 4-1 with a 1.35 ERA. Locke is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA at Triple-A. "Wevve got a really good, real challenging decision," general manager Neal Huntington said.dddddddddddd "Weve got the ability to make a change if it doesnt work or have another option come up if we face another injury while we probably will." Cutting Rodriguez will be costly for a team with one of baseballs lowest payrolls. Acquired in a trade with Houston in 2012, Rodriguez is scheduled to make $13 million this season, with the Pirates picking up $7 million of the tab. Rodriguez went 11-10 with a 4.16 ERA in 30 starts with the Pirates. Huntington acknowledged the move will certainly raise eyebrows in a clubhouse that began Thursday at just 19-26 and well back of front-running Milwaukee in the NL Central. Yet Huntington felt its one the team had to make. Pittsburghs starting rotation -- a major strength while the team pushed to its first playoff berth in more than two decades last fall -- has regressed significantly. The four starters not named Gerrit Cole are a combined 1-17 this season. Pittsburgh replaced Rodriguez on the roster Thursday by activating catcher Russell Martin from the disabled list. Martin hasnt played since straining his left hamstring against St. Louis on April 25. He will have to serve a one-game suspension for his role in a brawl against the Milwaukee Brewers last month and is expected to return to the lineup on Friday against Washington.
