Tuesday afternoon tidbits: Injury updates galore
Hello, all! Did you miss me? It was a good stretch of time off, and I’ll be blogging about Bonnaroo soon (highlights: Against Me!, Drive-By Truckers, Pearl Jam playing “All Along the Watchtower”).
In the meantime, lots to tell from the ballpark today:
* Yadier Molina is at the park. He worked out and said he’s feeling pretty good. He wants to play tomorrow, but it’s unlikely. Thursday or Friday is a good guess.
* Chris Carpenter said that after visiting Dr. Andrews, he will not have additional surgery. The hope is that rest will heal his irritation, and he expects his down time to be very brief.
* Todd Wellemeyer has been scratched from his Thursday start. Anthony Reyes is the expected replacement. Nobody sounds too worried at this point, indicating it’s more precautionary than anything.
* STL linup: Schumaker LF, Ryan 2B, Ludwick RF, Ankiel CF, Glaus 3B, Duncan 1B, LaRue C, Pineiro P, Izturis SS.
