Barrett to DL

Postby StarsNPinstripes » Sun Sep 03, 2006 1:55 pm

From Rotoworld:
Cubs placed catcher Michael Barrett on the 15-day disabled list with an intrascrotal hematoma.

That certainly can't be much fun. No word yet on whether Barrett, who was hurt on a foul tip Saturday, will be back this season, but the Cubs had no reason to DL him if they thought he would be. Henry Blanco will take over as the club's full-time catcher and Geovany Soto will back him up. Sep. 3 - 12:47 pm et

8-o Man. That's gotta hurt. I'm glad I looked in this forum today because I didn't even know about this until right now (thanks yahoo news blurbs for letting me know stupid stuff like Scott Kazmir being reprimanded for playing ping pong using his pitching arm with Travis Lee before BP the other day, but failing to even mention Barrett being hurt today)...time to find a new catcher on the waivers...

May I go the rest of my life without hearing the phrase "intrascrotal hematoma" again :-o

OUCH...poor guy. Surprised this doesn't happen more often to catchers. I guess the question is, was he wearing his cup???
