The Reds are playing down outfielder Ken Griffey Jr.'s latest injury, claiming he is day-to-day with a strained foot, but other sources beg to differ. An unnamed source told the Dayton Daily News that The Cincinnati Reds center fielder actually pulled part of a tendon off the bone, "Potentially a serious situation, potentially a season-ending injury," Griffey wants to play and finish out the season, but as the source explained, "if the tendon tears completely off the bone his season is over."
You didn't actually have money riding on him making it through a full season unscathed did you? What is remarkable is how his other injury issues have flown under the radar since he's playing well this season. Following the season, he'll become a pin cushion, having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after the season, surgery to fix a hole in his leg left over from his hamstring surgery last year that seeps, and his newly injured foot tendon will have to be repaired. He is capable of playing through these injuries for the four weeks of the season that remains, but his fantasy owners should temper their expectations.
