Helton update

Postby avsfan4ever33 » Sun Apr 23, 2006 8:48 pm

Todd Helton is expected to be released from the hospital on Monday after another battery of tests.
Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said doctors "haven't officially eliminated anything" but reiterated that Helton's condition isn't considered life-threatening. Helton was hospitalized Friday with severe lower abdominal pain and a fever.


Better news!

That is good news. I don't own him, but it's certainly good news in general for him. ;-D

Phew, that's good to hear. So the 15 day DL was maybe just a precaution (interesting).

I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

Uh, yeah. Great news. They put him on the 15 day disabled list for undiagnosed pains. But today they're comfortable he's probably not going to die. Somehow I'm not quite as excited as you guys.

Doesn't this sound a lot like the Giambi thing from a couple years ago? I don't really want to open that whole bag of worms, but that is just what it reminds me of.

Todd Helton
The Denver Post reports that Todd Helton is expected to be released from a hospital on Monday. Rockies officials hope to get a diagnosis of what's causing his severe abdominal pain by tonight or tomorrow. Among the conditions for which he's being tested are Crohn's disease, kidney stones and intestinal infections.
