Wednesday afternoon tidbits: Glaus, Ankiel, Carpenter updates
Plenty for you on a truly perfect afternoon at the park…
* Troy Glaus said he’s been diagnosed with a rotator cuff strain and tendinitis in his shoulder. He received a cortisone shot, much more localized than the one he had Sunday. He’ll be re-evaluated in 2-3 days, and if he feels good enough to play at that point, he’ll play.
* TLR said they may be getting close to shutting Ankiel down. Not in the lineup today, unlikely to be in the lineup even against the RHP tomorrow. More on this on the site as the afternoon goes on.
* Carpenter is not available and didn’t sound too optimistic when I talked to him.
* Even in light of the various injuries on offense, TLR said there are no plans to bring up Freese or Rasmus or anyone else.
