Giambi Bone Spur in Foot

Postby GP1 » Wed May 09, 2007 2:33 am

rotoworld:

Jason Giambi had X-rays after Tuesday's game that revealed a bone spur in his left foot.

Giambi expects to play through the problem and be in the lineup for Wednesday's game. "It's manageable," Giambi said. "It's not to the point where I can't stand on it." It probably is going to be a problem if he's asked to play first base, though, and with interleague play coming up, he could be looking at some time off. May. 9 - 12:36 am et

Update: Giambi (left heel) will not be in the starting lineup against the Rangers on Wednesday, the Westchester Journal-News reports.

Recommendation: Giambi said that the ailment is troublesome when he's at the plate, since most of his weight is planted on his back foot. There's no immediate plan to place him on the DL, but we'll have more information on his status as it becomes available.

Sounds like a DL stint in the making... if not now then later.

NEW YORK -- Jason Giambi was out of the Yankees lineup Wednesday, resting his left foot. His next stop will be a specialist.

"No matter what kind of work you do, or even if you're walking down the street, if your feet hurt, you're not comfortable," manager Joe Torre said.

Giambi spent most of the day in the trainer's room. Through spokesman Jason Zillo, he said it was "still a little aggravated," but the day off did some good. Still, Giambi is headed to see a foot specialist in Manhattan today and is likely to miss the game.

As for the disabled list, Torre couldn't rule it out, but said, "We're not there yet."

Giambi has a bone spur that flared up when he played first base on the hard turf in Texas last week. It seems that whenever Giambi, 36, plays the field he comes away with an injury, which could be a problem in road interleague play.

Any news on his visit to the foot specialist today? Would love to stick him on the DL as I'm seriously considering dropping him. ( I have Ortiz at 1B and Bonds/Carlos Guillen at Util)

Bone spur? Gimme a break.

I'm beginning to think that when a MLB player experiences the slightest discomfort from some strange anomaly an average person might brush aside they get consumed by it and make it a bigger thing than it is. God forbid Pujols gets stricken by a case of hemorrhoids.

Get out there and tough it out.

I mean, who the hell has even heard of bone spurs?

NEW YORK - Jason Giambi sat out his second straight game because of a sore left heel, but he thinks he found some answers from the foot specialist he saw yesterday that will help him return to the Yankees' lineup as the designated hitter tonight in Seattle.

"I have a little plantar fasciitis, and I have a little bone spur in there,'' Giambi said after the Yankees' 14-2 loss to the Rangers at Yankee Stadium. "The biggest thing is, he showed me a tape job I could use and got me some new orthotics and basically showed me a few exercises to try to help it out.

"I came in and showed (the trainers), and they put the tape job on me, and it made a huge, huge difference in the way my foot felt. I'm really optimistic. There's going to be some discomfort, but not like the pain I was in before. ... I felt like my feet were tearing apart every time I'd turn on that back foot.''

NEW YORK -- Jason Giambi got his left foot checked and received some good news.

"They gave me a way to wrap it and they're getting some orthodics for it," Giambi said. "I'm pretty optimistic."

Giambi, who left the game Tuesday night with a sore foot and sat out Wednesday, went to Manhattan to see a foot specialist Thursday morning. The original diagnosis was confirmed: He has a bone spur on his left heal that is aggravating an arch problem. An MRI showed inflammation.

Giambi was told a cortisone shot would be painful, so this more conservative approach will be given a chance. Since Giambi does not have a history of foot problems, there is a good chance it will not become a chronic issue.

When Giambi got back to the stadium, trainers Gene Monahan and Steve Donahue wrapped the foot the new way, and he was available to pinch hit.

"It made a huge, huge difference," Giambi said. "I have really high arches, so this is something to take some of the pressure off them."

Giambi hopes to be in the Yankees' lineup tonight at DH when they play at Seattle, and to play a few games at first base to get ready for the games next weekend at Shea Stadium, where there will be no DH.

If you've never had a bone spur, you couldn't understand how tough it is to hit a ball while suffering with it. If it's a serious one, it greatly affects your weight on each foot, timing, etc. It's not comparable to hemorrhoids.
