Griffey breaks hand

CINCINNATI -- Reds center fielder Ken Griffey Jr. suffered a broken left hand during an accident at his Orlando home, the club announced on Friday.

According to a release, the 18-year-veteran's hand was placed in a hard cast, where it will be until his next examination in three weeks.

"We'll know more then," said Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky when asked how the injury would affect Griffey's readiness for Spring Training in February.

Krivsky and the club did not reveal details of how Griffey broke his hand.

In 109 games last season, Griffey batted .252 with 27 home runs and 72 RBIs. His 563 career home runs tie him with Reggie Jackson for 10th on the all-time list.

Injuries have been an issue for Griffey since he joined the Reds before the 2000 season. He played 145 games that year but has not come close to that mark since.

In 2006, a strained biceps tendon in his right knee in April put Griffey on the disabled list for a month. A dislocated right toe suffered Sept. 4 while trying to climb the outfield fence limited the 37-year-old to just two pinch-hit at-bats over the Reds' final 24 games of 2006.

Griffey is a 12-time All-Star and was the 1997 American League MVP.

LOL, poor Ken.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I just wish this guy could stay healthy. He could be mentioned among the all-time greats had he gotten the past 6 years or so back with full health.
