Johnny Damon was battling so much pain in the arch of his left foot on Sunday, he said he "just couldn't move," giving him "no chance" at the plate or at running down balls in the outfield.
Damon was out of the lineup Tuesday night with the same problem, the fourth game he has missed this season. He hopes to return today or tomorrow, although he wouldn't rule out the possibility of a trip to the disabled list.
"Hopefully I can go (tonight), but I can't promise anything right now," Damon said. "I definitely need my legs to help this team."
Damon hasn't had any tests done yet, but he doesn't think it's a case of plantar fasciitis, the injury that ruined Jason Giambi's year in 2007.
Even if it means a DL stint, hopefully it's not a lingering issue.
