Big Hurt out for Season


Recommended Posts

CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas will miss the rest of the season because of a stress fracture in his left foot.





Thomas has been on the disabled list since July 10, and the White Sox hoped to have him back for the last few weeks of the season. But after examining Thomas on Friday, White Sox podiatrist Dr. Lowell Weil recommended he spend another six to eight weeks in a cast.



Thomas will be re-evaluated after six weeks.



"Frank's foot is healing on schedule, but these things just take time," Weil said. "We will take another look at his foot in about six weeks, and then decide on the next steps of his rehabilitation."



Thomas was hitting .271 with 18 homers and 49 RBI when he got hurt, and the two-time AL MVP was leading the league with 64 walks and a .434 on-base percentage.



The White Sox also are without Magglio Ordonez and don't know when he'll return. The outfielder had surgery to repair torn cartilage June 5 because of a May 19 collision with second baseman Willie Harris, and missed 36 games. He returned July 8, but played in only 10 games before a fluid problem in the knee forced him back onto the disabled list July 23.



Ordonez will spend up to eight weeks on crutches, putting his return this season in doubt
