Jun 30 LF Juan Pierre was placed on the 15-day disabled list for the first time in his nine-year major league career Monday after an MRI showed a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He is expected to miss four to six weeks. Pierre was injured when he stole second base in the sixth inning of Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Angels. He slid in headfirst, and Angels shortstop Erick Aybar fell on the back of Pierre's knee as he reached for an offline throw from catcher Mike Napoli. The steal was Pierre's 35th of the season, the second-most in the majors.
got it from yahoo this morning. Anyone with any more insight on how serious this is? i was banking on him for most of my steals, any chance of any early recovery?
