Chipper Jones injured

Postby gbill2004 » Sun Jul 02, 2006 3:28 pm

From Rotoworld:

Chipper Jones has been experiencing some pain on the bottom of his right foot, the same area that troubled him last year.

"It's been hurting for a week," said Jones, who was replaced in Sunday's lineup by Wilson Betemit. "It's the same thing that put me in a boot for six weeks last year." Jones will visit a foot specialist Monday and receive X-rays, which should give better indication of what is causing the pain. If Jones needs to go back on the DL, Betemit should have plenty of fantasy value. Jul. 2 - 2:41 pm et

Well, he just hit a three run homer so I don't know how serious it is.

And he hit one yesterday too. 3 home runs this week and I just traded him. Maybe his foot should "hurt" more often.

Actually, it doesn't sound good at all. More evidence that perhaps he would be better suited at first base or DH.

ATLANTA -- Chipper Jones' mood was very somber before Sunday afternoon's game against the Orioles. The veteran third baseman is feeling some of the same discomfort that led to his six-week stint on the disabled list last year.
Jones, who has chronic foot problems, has been experiencing some pain on the bottom of his right foot. Making him worried is the fact that the symptoms are similar to the ones he felt before realizing he had a torn ligament in his left foot in June of last year.

"It's been hurting for a week," said Jones, who was replaced in Sunday's lineup by Wilson Betemit. "It's the same thing that put me in a boot for six weeks last year."

Jones will visit a foot specialist on Monday and receive an MRI exam, which should give better indication of what is causing the pain.

Whatever it is, the discomfort hasn't affected him at the plate. The veteran third baseman, who has 15 hits in his past 31 at-bats, homered in the ninth inning of Saturday night's loss to the Orioles and was strong enough to hit another while pinch-hitting in the eighth inning of Sunday's game. It was his first career pinch-hit homer.

"I don't know what to think, because it's not anything serious yet," Jones said. "It's progressively gotten worse."

Jones first began feeling the discomfort last year, while scoring in an April 24 game. He remained out of the lineup for seven games and was forced to miss more games throughout May. He was forced to the disabled list after swinging and missing a pitch against the Pirates at PNC Park on June 5.

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones said his right foot felt better, but he still didn't know the extent of his injury before the Braves played St. Louis on Monday night.

The five-time All-Star is taking a cautious approach after missing 37 games last year with a strained ligament in his left foot. Jones was still waiting for team physician Marvin Royster to read the MRI taken earlier Monday.
"I can tell you it feels better today than it did yesterday, which is a good sign," Jones said. "Last year, quite frankly, it didn't get any better. At no point did it feel better, and then I got into the boot."

Braves manager Bobby Cox held Jones out of the lineup for the second straight day. Wilson Betemit will play third base until Jones feels better.

On Sunday, Jones had the first pinch-hit homer of his career, a three-run shot that ended the scoring in a 10-3 victory over Baltimore.

"They're going to hold me out until we get some definitive answers," Jones said. "They don't want me out there for nine innings. That repetitive pounding that it takes during the course of the game - we could have a setback."

This was posted 30 minutes ago...doesn't sound to good regardless of whether it's going to be as big of a problem as last year's injury.

The Braves held their hottest hitter out of the starting lineup for the second straight game Monday night after Chipper Jones had an MRI on his sore right foot earlier in the day.

The news wasn't great, but it wasn't too bad, either.

The MRI revealed a partial tear of the plantar plate and an inflammation of the medial collateral ligament.

Jones would be available to pinch-hit tonight against St. Louis, but will see foot specialist Dr. John Gleason for further evaluation on Wednesday.

"It feels better than it did [Sunday], which is a good sign," Jones said. "We needed to get a definitive answer, because I didn't want to be in a boot for six weeks like last year."

Jones was sidelined by a torn tendon in a similar spot near the ball of his left foot in 2005. This injury is similar, but not as severe.

The pain is a problem for the switch-hitter batting right-handed, but not left-handed. It's from that left side that he has done most of his recent damage.
