MLB.com reports Coco Crisp is scheduled to have his splint removed on Thursday so that the medical staff can re-evaluate the fracture at the base of his left index finger. "We'll go by what the new X-rays say," said Crisp. "If the crack has gotten smaller or if it's healed, we'll take it from there. I don't know what it's going to say yet. We're just waiting on that one."
Crisp will remain in Boston when the Red Sox begin their nine-game road trip on Friday. He will have daily workouts at Fenway Park along with fellow OF Gabe Kapler (Achilles'). Adam Stern, Wily Mo Pena and Dustin Mohr will continue to share time in center field in Crisp's absence.
I'm waiting for him to get healthy as well...I've netted 8 points, from his position, in his absence.
Jose Guillen sucked as a replacement...Craig Wilson is looking a little better..
