Giles out for a couple weeks

Postby Niffoc4 » Sun Sep 03, 2006 1:06 am

David O'Brien of the AJC (Braves beat writer) just wrote on his blog, that Giles missed today's doubleheader because of a heart-valve condition that was just discovered. O'Brien said he will probably miss a couple of weeks, though this is pending an examination in Atlanta to be sure. ... ent-648794

From Rotowire:

A valve in Giles' heart may not be operating properly and he'll undergo tests with a cardiovascular specialist on Sunday. He may need to undergo a minor surgical procedure that would keep him out a week, the team's official web site reports.

He may need to undergo a procedure in which a staple is used to close the malfunctioning valve in his heart. Given the injury, expect Giles to be out more than a week if he needs surgery. Either way, put him on reserve this week.

Time for Willy Aybar to prove his mettle.
