He's out 6 to 8 weeks...

Quote:
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Vernon Wells is out six to eight weeks with a broken left wrist suffered when he made a diving catch in Friday night's game against the Cleveland Indians.


Quote:
With a runner on first base, Cleveland's Franklin Gutierrez hit a fly ball to shallow right-center. Wells raced in and caught the ball inches above the ground, then rolled over twice and remained in a kneeling position.

"It didn't feel good then and as the night went on it gradually got worse," Wells said. "I felt something grab in my right hamstring just before the catch. I guess that will be healed in plenty of time before I'm ready now."

The center fielder got to his feet, but remained bent at the waist with his right hand holding his right thigh as head trainer George Poulis came out to attend to him. Wells walked back to the dugout.

Shannon Stewart came in to play left field, Brad Wilkerson moved from left to right and Alex Rios switched from right field to center.


I think some team needs an OFer...and we got a couple that are hot!!!

They just picked up Wilkerson and Mench. Neither of those guys are any good, of course, but then again, does Toronto think they will be in the race this year?

Speaking of the Jays, McGowan got lit up tonight, huh?

The Blue Jays seem to put good teams on the field. They just can't seem to buy any luck.

Bay... a Canadian team... seems like a match made in Heaven. As long as Heaven nets us some serious quality in return.

Nasty break. It wasn't Theisman-bad but still looked awful.
