Pudge injured!

Postby bunter » Wed Jul 06, 2005 9:40 pm

From Yahoo:

DETROIT'S IVAN RODRIGUEZ LEFT THE GAME IN THE SEVENTH INNING DUE TO A JAMMED LEFT PINKY FINGER.

Anyone saw what happened?

Yea, he got picked off second base. He jammed it diving back into the base, no big deal. He didn't seem to have any problem, but didn't come out for the next inning. Seeing that the Tigers had 6-1 lead at the time it's precautionary.

They just showed Pudge in the dugout tossing a ball and spinning his hat around on his hand. I'd say he's fine based on that. He may have tomorrow off as a day off or something but its nothing major. ;-D

Jul. 7
Ivan Rodriguez (C) Det jammed the little finger on his left hand while scoring a run in the fourth inning Wednesday night and left three innings later, according to the AP. He is listed as day-to-day.

I imagine that he'll be held out today at the least and until after the All-Star break at most. He seemed ok even after jamming it last night.

The announcers said that catching Bonderman was the main reason he had to leave. Bonderman's sinker was so sharp that every time he caught the ball it would jam into the bottom of the mitt and therefore his hurt pinky. They said if it wasn't for having a sinkerballer on the mound he probably would have been fine to stay in the game.

I'm pretty sure your thumb is at the bottom of the mitt, but nice attempt at humor.

Not on a sinker to a right-handed catcher from a right-handed pitcher. As the ball sinks down and to the left of the catcher he moves the mitt to the side so the top of the mitt is facing slightly down and to the left. When he does that, the pinky points straight down to the ground. As they mentioned and I was pointing out is that the motion that puts the pinky straight down is pretty much unique to catching a sinkerball pitcher (or a left handed slider). Fastballs the mitt would be straight up. Curves or sliders the mitt would either be straight up, slightly to the right (putting the thumb down) or straight down if you had to block a ball in the dirt. But with the sinkerball you have to reach out to the left and down if it tails enough and that was what was beating up his finger.
