Person out for season with Achilles injury

Postby WebHamster » Sat Feb 14, 2004 3:00 am

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chicago White Sox pitcher Robert Person is expected to miss the entire 2004 season with a ruptured Achilles' tendon.

Person, 35, suffered the injury during a workout last week. He was expected to compete for the White Sox's fifth spot in their starting rotation.

After signing a $500,000 base contract for 2004, Person would have been guaranteed $750,000 if he made the 40-man roster.

"He was down in the dumps and depressed," Chicago pitching coach Don Cooper said. "I put myself in his spot and realized how down he really was."

A hip injury limited Person to work in just seven games with Boston in 2003.

In nine career seasons with the New York Mets, Toronto, Philadelphia and the Red Sox, Person owns a 51-42 record with a 4.64 earned run average.

"I feel bad for Person because he was fighting hard to come back from all his injuries," Cooper said. "It sounded like he was looking pretty promising and might be able to do just that."
