Rangers' Laird out three months

Postby WebHamster » Fri May 21, 2004 9:00 pm

Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - Texas Rangers catcher Gerald Laird is expected to miss 12 weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb that will require surgery.

Laird suffered the injury in Thursday's 6-3 win against Kansas City and was placed on the 15-day disabled list afterwards. An MRI on Friday morning confirmed the injury, which will require surgery on Saturday.

Laird hurt the thumb in the first inning while making a defensive play at the plate. After tagging out Royals first baseman Ken Harvey at home for the final out of the frame, Laird did not return and was replaced in the lineup by Rod Barajas.

In 29 games this season, the rookie is batting .307 with no homers and 12 RBI.
