Rolen out of the lineup tonight...

Just a heads up, guys.


This is just what I need...first Magglio and Delgado out. Now it's Rolen with a *head* injury. Hope he's alright thought.

I have a strange feeling that his injury is worse than the Cardinals are saying.... :-?

You don't just leave a game and play the next day after a "mild concussion."

I really wish these teams would just put guys on the 15-day DL so I can pick somebody else up for them. They're just taking up space wasting away on my bench. If Rolen goes down for any significant period of time, I'll have to drop a pitcher to find a replacement.

:-o

Anyway, let's just pray that it's not very serious. Head injuries are nothing to mess around with.

Doesn't sound too serious based on this article from stlcardinals.com

PITTSBURGH -- Cardinals third baseman Scott Rolen was held out of the lineup on Wednesday, a day after being hit in the forehead by a Ryan Vogelsong fastball. Rolen is still bothered by a headache, though his other symptoms from what is being called a "mild concussion" have diminished since Tuesday.
John Mabry took Rolen's place at third base, while Jim Edmonds slotted from fifth into Rolen's usual fourth spot in the batting order. Originally, manager Tony La Russa made out a lineup that included Rolen, but head trainer Barry Weinberg and the Cardinals' medical staff decided that Rolen should be held out for another day due to his headache.

"He came in with some mild symptoms, just a little headache," said Weinberg. "But everything else has decreased. We're gonna give him a full workout and sit him today. Then we'll evaluate him tomorrow.

"If he goes through this full workout and tomorrow all the symptoms are decreased, he'll be OK to go."

Manager Tony La Russa said it was possible that Rolen will be available to pinch-hit or even potentially play defense in the late innings. However, the team will try to be cautious with its five-time Gold Glove-winning, All-Star third baseman.

"The whole key to the workout is to see one, how the headache is, and two, his focus and stuff like that," said Weinberg. "See how he's focusing, make sure his eyes are OK and the headache doesn't increase. Then we'll take the next step."

Rolen is batting .348 with a .410 on-base percentage and a .625 slugging percentage. He has hit 13 home runs and leads the Majors with 53 RBIs.

Mabry has played primarily first base and outfield over parts of 11 seasons in the big leagues, but he has made 85 appearances at third base. He played five games at third for Triple-A Memphis before his recall on May 26. Other options for the Cards at third include Hector Luna and Cody McKay.

Phew! Let's hope it's just precautionary.
