Angels: Glaus to have another MRI on shoulder

by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com
Tuesday, August 12, 2003

News
Angels’ third baseman Troy Glaus, who has been out since July 24 with a right shoulder contusion, will undergo a second MRI on Tuesday according to a report on the team’s web site. Dr. Lewis Yocum, with whom Glaus met on Monday, recommended the test be done. Glaus played two minor-league rehabilitation games last week and aggravated the injury trying to make a throw.

Views
We’re not going to hold our breath waiting for good results from the MRI. Hate to say it, but it’s looking more and more like Troy’s season could be over. Scott Spiezio and Alfredo Amezaga will continue to play third base until Glaus returns.

More from Fantistics.com:

Aug. 12

Although GM Bill Stoneman says that he is not committed to resting Troy Glaus and Erstad for the rest of the season, the reality is that there is absolutely no reason for them to return and play if the Angels are double-digit games out of the playoff race. Dr. Lewis Yocum has an MRI scheduled for Glaus today, which should shed some light on his status for the rest of the year, and the recommendation for Erstad was continued physical therapy on his troublesome hamstring. It is not likely that either of the two will be helping you down the stretch, so contingency plans are a must.

If I owned Glaus, I'd certainly be looking for an option for the rest of the year.

Glad that I just pulled the trigger on a deal for Rolen. Like many others, Glaus spoiled us with that sweet swing in the World Series.

from what i have read it sounds like they angels are readying themselves to be without glaus the rest of the season, and so should his fantasy owners. pick up a serviceable FA like tony batista.

An MRI of Glaus' shoulder revealed a partial tear of his rotator cuff and fraying of the labrum, the Associated Press reports.


Time to drop him?

The Angels are out of it.

Therefore, Glaus is done!
