Foulke getting injections

Postby Fenway05 » Wed Mar 01, 2006 3:33 pm

The agent for Keith Foulke (P) Bos said his client is receiving injections in both knees, according to the Boston Globe. The injections are intended to lubricate his surgically repaired joints and help the healing process. The shots will be administered over a two-week period, though it's not clear when he received the first one

Doesn't look like anything serious but could be smoke a screen.

I tHink Bosox fans and Foulke have to be a little concerned. Receiving injections in both knees are to relieve pain, isn't this a sign of chronic knee problems? Anyone with any experience with knee injuries can probably elaborate. One knee gets hurt, the other one compensates and then eventually they both are bad. That's my take. I am in tough position whether or not keep Foulke or cut bait in my keeper league.

I have no experience with knee injuries, but they were talking about it on talk radio the other day. These weren't the type of shots players take to kill the pain. They said these were standard shots for someone with his injury.

I'm not sure I trust what they said. Can anyone confirm?

Heres an update from the Boston Globe

Im thinking of picking up Timlin at least for the first month.
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Paplebon will likely be the closer not timlin.





The injections are to replace the body's nature fluid in the knees. Apperently they are given in a series over several days and last about a year, so this shouldn't be a problem all year long.


However the shots are not usually needed after this type of procedure.

A little too early to call the closer. The knee injections are for lubrication which is not really a good sign. My friends down at camp in Florida also mentioned he still is having location problems with the change. Looks like it may be some time for him to be ready. COuld be a LONG time.

The Sox most likely will trade a starter in the next month as they have three on the block. If he isn't traded, management would prefer Arroyo out of the pen. With the new right handed relief, I would think Pap will start and Timlin gets the call for at least the first couple of months.

Isn't this a similar sort of thing to the shots RJ gets on a semi-regular basis?

these injections are not anything like cortisone
post/op rehab uses this as a common tool for lubrication
for non athletes as well
honestly, his knees aren't anything to worry about
worry about his psyche

I'm drafting and trading for foulke ever time I get the chance. He's one guy I think will have a huge bounce back yr.

I'm not woried about his knees or his psyche....he knows there is a line of quality pitchers who like to have his gig - he will be up to task this yr

(after this season? who knows?)
