This from CBS Sportsline:
News: Michael Barrett might miss the rest of the season after he was hit in the groin with a foul tip and underwent surgery. He will miss at least two to three weeks, trainer Mark O'Neal said. "We have to see how he responds with the swelling and then we have to re-evaluate him," O'Neal said. Sunday. The Cubs placed Barrett on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and called up Buck Coats from Triple-A. Barrett was injured by Matt Cain's foul tip in the fifth inning Saturday. He left the game after batting the next half-inning. Barrett went to the emergency room and an ultrasound showed bleeding inside his scrotum. Surgery took less than an hour, O'Neal said. The Cubs started Geovany Soto at catcher. Henry Blanco, the backup catcher, had to play first base for the first time since he was with the Dodgers in 1997.
Analysis: This sounds horrible to us. Consider Barrett all but out for the season at this point. You might want to cut him for an option down the stretch, since he might only return for the season's final week. "He had enough of a bleed that it needed to be addressed surgically," O'Neal said. "Guys get hit a lot. You see guys get hit and very rarely does it get to this extreme." Barrett felt ill after his at-bat in the fifth. "He went down (after his at-bat) and said, 'Bake, I'm feeling sick man. This is hurting badly,"' Baker said. "So I said, 'OK, go see the doctor.' He tried to tough it out."
