Phillies' Thome sits with sore finger

Posted: 41 minutes ago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Phillies first baseman Jim Thome was scratched from the starting lineup for Friday night's game against Atlanta because of a finger injury.

Thome missed five games because of the injury before returning Tuesday. He was 3-for-9 with two RBIs in three games after he came back.
Thome sprained a ligament after adjusting the way he gripped the bat to compensate for an injured left thumb. On Friday, the club listed his injury as mild tendinitis.

"It's just a nagging injury that I'm trying to put behind me," Thome said.

Thome was examined Friday and got an injection.

Manager Larry Bowa said he expects Thome - .319 with 11 homers and 24 RBIs this season - to play on Saturday.

I am so sick of these nagging injuries....I rarely field a full team (weekly) between Thome, Helton, Mags & W. Harris & now Klesko too.

Us Thome owners should count themselves lucky he played Tuesday through Thursday. Missing him for 5 games last week practically wiped out my offensive stats. Hopefully taking a day off will help him heal.

I just read on Phillynews.com that Bowa expects Thome to play Saturday....maybe since tomarrow is early start is the main reason he didnt play tonight.....one can only hope!

I wish he would just pull a Ronnie Lott and get back in the game.
