OF Elijah Dukes tweaked his right groin as he fired to the plate on the final play of Friday night's 6-5, 10-inning loss to the Braves. Dukes, who fielded 2B Kelly Johnson's base hit but couldn't throw out OF Jordan Schafer at the plate, limped off the field. The Nationals didn't know immediately how severe the injury is.
Any add'l info would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking of making a couple of key adds and between his:
1. Starting the season on the bench
2. Over-crowded OF in WASH
3. An injury a week into the season
...he may be a target to drop.
This is what would be refered to as early season panic. He probably won't play for at least a few days, but unless he goes on the DL, which I've read no indication of yet, I'd wait unless your in a shallow league. He's 4/11 with some walks so he should get a decent amount of playing time when healthy. Ultimately it depends on your league. I have him myself, and I'm not panicing yet. There's no FA in my league with as good a shot at a 20/20 season.
