What's the word on Howie Kendrick?

Postby clarkw267 » Sat Jul 28, 2007 7:04 pm

Sorry If this is posted, but I didn't see it on the first couple pages...

Does anyone know the timetable in which he is supposed to return?

I'm trying to decide who to drop in H2H Pence or Kendrick.

I've read a few places that his hand is healing rather slowly and the creak was still not healed as of a new xray he had a few days ago. I haven't read anything on timetables, but I'd be surprised if he was back much before the end of august and he may not be productive until sometime in september. I dropped him when i heard the latest xray news and picked Kinsler off waivers for my DL spot since he's due back soon.

wildbills got it right.

last Monday xrays show its not improving AT ALL. he cant grip a bat, he cant do anything right now...i doubt Kendrick will be around to offer real production till late in fantasy playoffs. if there is someone due back sooner you can swap out in ur DL slot, id say do it.

The initial timetable was only a couple weeks. The Angels said they expected him back by the end of July. That obviously isn't the case now. Unless he has a setback, I think end of August would be the worst case scenario.

I dropped Kendrick in favor of keeping Pence on my DL. I feel like Pence has more potential for the fantasy playoffs when he's back.

Some news. Sounds like an improvement.

Kendrick was examined in Southern California on July 30 and was allowed to remove his splint. He was told that X-rays showed some healing.
