Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit has a right wrist injury of unknown severity, though more will be known after an MRI this afternoon at Allegheny General Hospital.

X-rays did not detect a fracture.

Doumit injured in his second at-bat yesterday during a swing. Manager John Russell said Doumit came to PNC Park today complaining of soreness, adding that Doumit described the injury as "more like a pull than a pop."

"Pull" - not good but usually not the end of the world.
"Pop" - bad; just plain bad.

Let's hope that Doumit's description is accurate.

Maybe it'll turn out to be a just a "Tweak". Hopefully, it's not a "Torque" or a "Rip", not to mention the dreaded "Burst"' or "Shred".

Burst wrist (edited: originally said thumb, not sure where I got that from). Now that would be bad.

Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap. The Pirates cannot afford to lose Doumit. If they say anything on the radio let us know. This is bad news. Crap.

Watching SportsBeat right now. They had Russell on commenting on Doumit. Right now, they are using the word "sore" and they are having tests done to see what exactly is the problem. I guess he did this in the big win against the Braves swinging at a pitch.

Just reported that there is no news yet. They hope that he will only miss 2-3 games.

If Jaramillo keeps playing the way he has been we won't miss Doumit at all! ;)
