Sounds pretty bad...
Weeks injured a tendon while waggling a bat on the bench before batting practice earlier in the week, yet another blow to a team already rife with weird injuries.
Yost, who is prone to understating injuries, has called Weeks' injury "irritation." But indications from other sources are that it's much more serious than that, and a trip to the disabled list remains a possibility.
"It's somewhat similar to J.J.'s, where the tendon is loose," Melvin said. "You have to tighten that tendon up. It's how tough you are, and how much [pain] you can put up with. Rickie has such a hard swing, I don't know if he can put up with it."
JJ had season ending surgery. Not saying that Rickie will, just that Yost is comparing the injury to JJ's.
