Sexson reinjured????????

here is the bad news...

Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Richie Sexson left Saturday's game against the Florida Marlins after aggravating a left shoulder injury that recently sidelined him for more than three weeks.

Sexson, who had been on the disabled list until being activated before Friday night's game, left after drawing a walk in the sixth inning of Florida's 11-2 victory. He aggravated his shoulder while checking his swing on ball four.

Sexson originally injured his shoulder while trying to check his swing April 28 against the Chicago Cubs.

"We're very concerned, obviously, given the fact the initial diagnosis was six to eight weeks or four to six weeks, depending on which doctor you believe," Arizona manager Bob Brenly said. "Richie was back after three and felt confident that he had enough strength in that shoulder. He passed all the tests physically on the field that we needed to see, but it's kind of hard to simulate a check swing."

Sexson, who was hitless in two at-bats Saturday after going 1-for-5 on Friday night, sent word through a team spokesman that he did not want to speak with reporters.

Diamondbacks trainer Paul Lessard said he did not expect Sexson to play in the final two games of the series. He probably will travel to Phoenix to be evaluated by Dr. Michael Lee when the team heads to San Francisco after Monday's series finale.

"His shoulder is in place, it's not out of joint," Lessard said. "He actually has good strength against resistance when doing an evaluation in here but it's just that the tissue in there is not fully healed yet."

Sexson is batting .233 with nine home runs and 23 RBIs in 23 games.

"Anybody watching BP today, they saw him launching some balls into the upper deck," Lessard said, "so obviously, he has some pretty good strength in there. So that's what leads me to believe the labrum is the issue and not necessarily musculature or a bone bruise."

My question is if it is his labrum
is that another DL STINT???

I am sure that they will let him sit next week, but surely he should be back in 2 weeks right?

Rotoworld says at least 2 games. Not sure if that needs to be updated or just not trying to cry wolf to quickly.

Does this news make anybody want to try and trade FOR Sexson? This should lower the asking price somewhat...

im not sure if I would trade for him now...i just read in an arizona article that there is a good chance this could be season ending if he tore through it all. also it said even a partial tear would be twice as long this time 6-8 weeks.

ugghh, i just traded for him a week ago :~(

This has kind of been mentioned, but thought I would give it some formality:

Rotoworld:


Richie Sexson - 1B - Diamondbacks
May. 23 - 10:21 am et

The Diamondbacks are fearful that Richie Sexson has torn the labrum muscle in his left shoulder again.
Sexson will be re-evaluated today and then meet with team physician Dr. Michael Lee in Phoenix early next week. The early indications are not good though, and if Sexson's labrum is again torn, he could be gone from 4 weeks to the rest of the season depending on the severity of the tear.

Not looking good for Richie....have to consider that it also hurts the value of all Diamondback pitchers also.

what a shame....the guy was putting together a nice season

LOL, it's "Little Mac" and "Doc" from Mike Tyson's Punch Out. Someone didn't play enough Nintendo as a child. ;-D
