Thome to miss a few games with hand injuries

Postby WebHamster » Wed May 19, 2004 7:00 pm

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Jim Thome will be held out of the lineup for the next couple of days with various hand ailments, starting with Wednesday's home tilt against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Thome had a follow-up appointment with hand specialist Dr. Randall Culp to examine the fractured middle finger on his right hand that he hurt during spring training as well as the sprained left thumb that was aggravated last week.

During the examination, it was discovered that Thome also has a sprained ligament on his right index finger.

In his second year with the Phillies, Thome is batting .318 with 11 homers and 22 RBI. He combined with Pat Burrell and Bobby Abreu in back-to-back-to-back home runs in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Dodgers.

In other news, the team announced that left-handed starter Randy Wolf will miss his next turn in the rotation due to a mild case of tendinitis in his throwing elbow, while righthander Brian Powell was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right levator scapulae strain.

To fill in the roster, the Phillies recalled pitcher Geoff Geary from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
