Albert Pujols

Postby Bullatopia » Sun Jun 19, 2011 4:14 pm

Found some info on the injury:

He has a broken wrist and maybe a shoulder injury, as well." His wrist begin to show significant swelling within seconds. It's quite possible that he suffered a fracture of some kind."

I'm not sure on how long he'll be on the DL... But if you have info on the timetable, let it be known

"someone" told you? who?

this happened in the last 30min, and you have a contact that told you he may be out 3-4 weeks? yet you are coming to a msg board for clarification?

Yes, a Cards fan told me those type of injuries last about 3-4 weeks on ESPN, but I think it'll be more than that.

Looks like the mystery Cards fan was right:

FoxSports.com reports: Albert Pujols will be sidelined from 4-to-6 weeks because of a small fracture in his wrist, according to a Twitter report by FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal.

rotoworld:

Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Albert Pujols' fractured left wrist has shown "significant improvement," which could allow him to possibly return before the All-Star break.

Wow, talk about good news for the Cardinals and Pujols' fantasy owners. According to Strauss, the Cardinals slugger has received "aggressive treatment to promote healing of the bone" and a follow-up CT scan Friday "found a diminished fissure on the distal tip of Pujols' left radius." He will be examined Monday and, assuming doctors don't find anything unexpected, could be cleared to resume baseball-related activities soon after. El Hombre is now on track to return as early as next weekend and as late as the first game after the All-Star break. Maybe the guy isn't human after all.

Eh...I'd rather he just took the extra few days, but at least it seems to be healing.

Yup, he was activated, but apparently he won't start till tomorrow.

I left him on the dl for this week, so you can bet he's going on a binge.
