Is this THE Cliff Floyd injury?

Postby Simulacrum » Mon Jul 04, 2005 11:01 am

Sounds like trouble this time-

Jul 4 Floyd's absence from the starting lineup in the Mets' 3-0 loss to Florida was partially due to him receiving a day off but mainly because he was nursing a sore right hamstring, the NY Post reports. "I jumped for that ball the other day and kind of tweaked it a little bit," he said. "I'll be ready to play [Monday] afternoon."

Recommendation: Floyd, who was snubbed for the NL All-Star team, had played in the previous 24 games before missing Sunday's contest but he expects to be back in the lineup Monday against the Nationals.

Jul 4 Mets outfielder Cliff Floyd wasn't in the lineup on Sunday and manager Willie Randolph acknowledged it was not a customary day off. "He's banged up pretty good," Randolph told the New York Post before yesterday's 3-0 loss to Florida. "He's been banged up for a few days now, and I want to make sure he stays strong. Floyd admitted being bothered by a right hamstring. "I jumped for that ball the other day and kind of tweaked it a little bit," he said. "I'll be ready to play [this] afternoon."

Views: Floyd is considered day-to-day, but injuries like this have had a tendency to linger at other times during his career, so fantasy owners should approach this one with caution. He is expected to be back in the lineup on Monday, and at this point, he should remain in fantasy lineups unless the threat of a more permanent absence presents itself.

Floyd hasn't been on my radar screen since this season, is this how his other injury-plagued seasons started? Anyone else worried or not so worried? :-?

Not yet. The guy just tweaked it. Im sure he'll come back, push it, then rip the thing...then he'll be done. Give him another game or two...

He's batting third in the lineup today. :-?

I'm benching him for Rolen though.

Man I've enjoyed having Floyd's bat on my team... I really hope this isn't what I've been afraid of all season... :-o

He fouled a ball off his knee and that and various small bumps and bruises, plus having Dontrelle going, all attributed to the day off. He should be fine.

He has really helped. If you can I would bench him the next few games or so, especially since the games are at RFK.

False Alarm. He's just banged up, but should be fine, for the time being at least. I'm surprised he's stayed this healthy this long, actually. Very nice, as a fan. Wish I owned the guy.
