ughh, that sucks.
was this type of injury stuff worked into his contract as well?
I believe much of the contract was voidable if he was unable to play 120 games this year.
Only for a knee injury.
"It also doesn't threaten Ordonez's unusual five-year, $75 million contract, which can be voided if Ordonez misses a significant amount of time with the same knee injury that required two surgeries last year.
The Tigers can't void the contract because of a hernia, but they don't want to, either."
