Aaron Rowand Hurt Again

These problems seem to be like they come from a lack of range. Guy seems to get late jumps on the ball and is then running full-tilt instead of making an earlier jump and catching it in a slower stride.

 

Same goes for Jeter's infamous diving into the stands catch.

 

Looks like both are ok though, which is good to see.

Looks like Rowand's season is over. Broken ankle.

 

Rowand breaks ankle, out 4-6 weeksBy PAUL HAGEN

Daily News Sports Writer

 

CHICAGO -- Phillies centerfielder Aaron Rowand suffered a broken left ankle Monday night when he collided with second baseman Chase Utley chasing a pop fly off the bat of Cubs first baseman John Mabry and is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks, the Phillies confirmed today.

The news was first reported by the Daily News on Philly.com earlier this morning.

 

Rowand will return to Philadelphia to see a foot specialist, once he is medically cleared to fly, the Phillies said.

 

He had been taken to the hospital after the Phillies' 6-5 win over the Cubs for what were termed precautionary X-rays.

 

This is Rowand's second trip to the disabled list this season. He missed 2 weeks with a broken nose and fractures around his left eye after his crash into the wall at Citizens Bank Park in May.

 

The Phillies are 2 1/2 games behind the Cincinnati Reds after reaching .500 last night for the first time since June 19.

 

It was not immediately apparent what moves the team, which had placed closer Tom Gordon on the DL after the game, would make. It's possible that two position players will be recalled from the minors. The Phillies had been carrying 13 pitchers, leaving manager Charlie Manuel with a short bench.

 

In the short term, Shane Victorino would mosty likely take over in centerfield with Pat Burrell in left and David Dellucci in right.

"I really hope my ankle isn't broken. I've been swinging a hot bat lately." - Aaron Rowand

 

Guys who appreciate the game are the guys who become great players. As I said before, Rowand has been through a lot this year. He's a warrior and he's turning into one of my personal favorites.

 

Sad to see him out for 4-6 but he'll be back.

You think the Phillies are making the playoffs or something? The season's only got a month and change left and Gordon just got shelved too.

Did I ever say anything about the Phillies making the playoffs? All I said was Rowand is a warrior and he's becoming one of my favorite players.

 

Words being put into my mouth is not something I enjoy.

I've never seen a guy hitting .260 and struggling at the plate despite his quote get so much respect from Philly fans....it just shows we reward hustle even at the expense of talent
