Ordonez out two to three months

Tigers outfielder undergoing hernia surgery this week
The Associated Press
Updated: 6:15 p.m. ET April 26, 2005CLEVELAND - Detroit Tigers outfielder Magglio Ordonez will be sidelined for two to three months after hernia surgery this week.


Ordonez, who signed a $75 million, five-year contract with Detroit during the offseason, will be operated on by Dr. Bill Meyers on Wednesday on Philadelphia. The Tigers had estimated Friday that the four-time All-Star would miss at least four to six weeks, but they increased their estimate Tuesday to eight to 12 weeks.

Ordonez, 31, missed 110 games with the Chicago White Sox last season because of a knee injury. He was sent back to Detroit from Minnesota last Wednesday because of what the team described as a viral infection. Ordonez has felt ill since the end of spring training and has played in just three games, going 0-for-10.

***********

DETROIT Detroit slugger Magglio Ordonez is to undergo hernia surgery tomorrow.

The outfielder reportedly will miss eight to 12 weeks.

Ordonez signed a five-year, 75 (m) million-dollar contract with the Tigers in the offseason.

He's been ailing most of the spring. He's currently on the Tigers' disabled list.

Ordonez was examined in Montreal but a specialist there couldn't come up with a firm diagnosis. Another hernia specialist in Philadelphia was to check him out this week.

A nagging knee injury forced Ordonez to miss all but 52 games with the Chicago White Sox last season.

Tough break for Maggs and his owners.

I guess it's safe to "cut bait" on him now.

Scott Boras looks like a genius by specifing it be his knee that would void the contract, and not just general DL time. Now the Tigers are stuck under that massive contract.

Definately cut bait in anything but H2H leagues. And even in H2H leagues, dont waste the roster space if there is something else that could help.
