Phillie Phanatics, any word on Burrell

Postby grizznander » Sun Apr 24, 2005 8:39 pm

Heard P. Burrell left the game with soreness in his groin. I'm in a Yahoo league where rosters are changes once a week (now). Do I out him on the bench????????????

Phillie Phanatics, any word on Burrell

Postby John Kemp » Sun Apr 24, 2005 10:22 pm

I put him on my Bench after reading this on their website..

ATLANTA -- The Phillies' slumping offense took a step backward when its leading run producer, Pat Burrell, left Sunday afternoon's game in Atlanta in the fourth inning with a strained right groin.
Burrell, who started action Sunday tied for the Major League lead in RBIs with 20 with Baltimore's Miguel Tejada, was injured running out a ground ball to third in the fourth inning of the Phillies' 4-0 loss.

"He's hurting," said manager Charlie Manuel. "He's out tomorrow."

Manuel stopped short of saying if the team would put its starting left fielder on the disabled list.
"Not right now he's not," said Manuel. "We'll see where he's at tomorrow and go from there."

The Phillies, who open a three-game set Monday in Washington, can ill afford to be without Burrell, after scoring only three runs in 27 innings against the Braves, and getting shut out over the final 16.

"Everybody needs to step up," said Manuel.

Burrell is two RBIs away from setting a new the franchise mark for RBIs in April. He was the National League Player of the Week for the week of April 4-10.

He will not be put on the DL as of this morning and will sit out 3-5 games. Not a serious injury. Put him on you bench.

Burrell was in the on-deck circle when the 8th ended --- almost surely will avoid the DL.
