Rolen Out Until May

with 2 comments

Jordan Bastian has an update on Scott Rolen: the pin in his finger will be removed on the 7th, he will probably wait until the 14th to pick up a ball and doctors are expecting it to be 4-6 weeks since the surgery until he can play, which would make it somewhere between April 21st-May 5th.

The injury actually had nothing to do with a ripped nail, but J.P. wasn’t just having fun with us again. According to Rolen:

“We were looking at the wrong thing. We thought the nail was bent up 45 degrees and, actually, the bottom of my finger was bent down 45 degrees. That’s the wrong 45 degrees.”

I can’t picture that and don’t really want to try (apparently there are pictures going around the clubhouse “like a faces of death thing”). Also interesting is that Dr. Graham is more worried about Rolen’s ability to hit than throw after the injury. I guess in this case it’s more the tip of the finger, but hitters always seem to take forever to get the feel back after breaking a bone in their hands.

So let’s get ready for a whole lot of Scutaro in the hot corner! I hear he’s clutch…

  1. We read this a little too quickly at first, and thought that you wrote that Rolen was having his finger removed on the 7th…which wouldn’t have been a good thing, we don’t imagine.
