News on Hidalgo

Postby mtarail » Sun Aug 03, 2003 5:51 pm

I've noticed that since Hidalgo started slumping about a week ago he's been on the bench some days (like today). Does anybody know why they're benching him? Are they benching him against lefty starters or something?
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Bump. Any help? I've checked rototimes and Sporting News Fantasy Source and haven't found any news/reason for Hidalgo sitting on the bench.

Found this in the morning paper ...
Houston Chronicle wrote:The mere act of walking shot pain through Richard Hidalgo's right hip Sunday, worrying the Astros' right fielder a day after suffering the injury on a swing.

Hidalgo, who leads the Astros in batting average at .312, was out of the starting lineup Sunday. He hopes the latest hip problem is not the same as the one that knocked him out for all but one game in the final six weeks of last season.

Last Aug. 22, Hidalgo strained his right hip and eventually went on the disabled list. A magnetic resonance imaging test was negative on Sept. 6, so he returned from the disabled list three days later. He hit a RBI double in Sept. 9 against the Rockies but aggravated the injury running the bases and was lost for the year.

The injury was on Hidalgo's mind in the eighth inning Saturday night when he tweaked his right hip on his first swing. He struck out against Ugueth Urbina.

"It hurts a lot," Hidalgo said. "I have to see how it responds to treatment the next few days. On the first swing in the eighth, I rotated my back leg and felt a sharp pinch. It worries me because this is what hurt me last year.

"I have to have faith that it will heal. It bothers me to have injuries. I've been doing my job this year, and now I have this pain. I have to have faith, but it hurts just to walk. Hopefully, the injury will calm down in the next few days."

Manager Jimy Williams, who started Orlando Merced in right field Sunday, hopes Hidalgo's injury isn't serious.

"He looked good walking in, but there's a big difference between walking and running and playing," he said. "Let's see how he is after treatment today."

They also said during yesterday's game that he was battling a hip problem, I wasn't really paying attention to the game but I remember hearing that.
