He stole 3rd base, then was replaced for a pinch-runner, is he OK?
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Alfonso Soriano - 2B - TEX Premium Rangers Seating


Alfonso Soriano left today's game with a leg injury caused on a headfirst slide.
He appeared to get his left foot caught under his right leg as he reached out for third base. He was able to walk off the field under his own power after laying on the ground for two minutes. Sep. 16 - 6:50 pm et



The fact that he got off on his own power is somewhat encouraging...

Latest from the AP wire:

Soriano Hurts Leg in Headfirst Slide

By GREG BEACHAM
AP Sports Writer

September 16, 2004, 8:36 PM EDT

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Texas Rangers star Alfonso Soriano left Thursday's game against Oakland in the eighth inning after injuring his left leg on a headfirst slide, putting the rest of his season in doubt.

The All-Star second baseman will have an MRI exam Friday.

"It doesn't look very good," manager Buck Showalter said after Texas' 5-4 loss to the Athletics. "But we won't comment until the MRI."

Soriano was hurt while stealing third base. He easily beat the throw, but appeared to get his left foot caught under his right leg as he reached out for the bag.

Soriano felt pain behind his left knee.

"I don't know what happened," he said. "Right now, I can't feel the tendon behind the knee. About three or four feet before I got to the base, I started my slide, and I felt something."

The All-Star game MVP stayed on the ground for two minutes as trainers looked at his leg. He got up and did a bit of running, but eventually left the game with help from the Texas training staff.

Manny Alexander pinch-ran for Soriano, 0-for-3 with a walk before his bold steal of third against reliever Jim Mecir. He was 6-for-14 with three homers and six RBIs in the first three games of the series.

Soriano, sixth in the AL with 170 hits, is batting .280 with 28 homers and 91 RBIs in his first season with the Rangers. He was traded to Texas by the Yankees last winter for Alex Rodriguez.

If the injury is serious, it's happening at a bad time for the third-place Rangers, who dropped five games behind Oakland in the AL West with their latest loss.

With 16 games to play, Texas still has hopes of earning its first playoff berth since 1999, but the versatile second baseman is a key part of the offense.

That would be the likely scenario ;-D .

I really hope Soriano is ok though. :-o
