A light Monday to begin Week 3. I guess the rain didn't help much either. Here's hoping things look up for the rest of the week.
"Braves C Brian McCann was out of the starting lineup for a second consecutive game because of blurred vision. He is to meet with an eye doctor Tuesday." Lasik surgery isn't everything its cracked up to be. Sometimes it doesn't work well for folks. The good news for McCann and his owners is that the meeting with the doctor went well. He was given a contact lens for the eye. He expects to be in the Braves lineup for Tuesday's game.
In other catcher news, "Pirates C Ryan Doumit (sore right wrist) may miss the series" against the Marlins. DOH! A CT scan showed a fracture in Doumit's wrist. Doctors will perform surgery on Thursday to insert pins to accelerate healing. Doumit will miss 8 to 10 weeks. Jason Jaramillo is expected to assume catching duties for the Bucs.
"Red OF Jay Bruce missed his third consecutive game with a bruise on his right hand, although he did pinch run in Sunday's game." Rotowire reports thate Bruce will return on Tuesday. I am beginning to wonder how the hurt hand will affect his hitting. For now, I would keep the kid in reserve.
