La Russa to miss rest of trip
The Cardinals have just announced that manager Tony La Russa will miss the remainder of the team’s current road trip while he recovers from a persistent case of shingles.
La Russa remained in the Phoenix area on Tuesday for a second day of examinations, and earlier in the day the club had announced that he would miss Tuesday’s game. Shortly before the end of the game Tuesday night, it was announced that he will not rejoin the team before Monday’s home game against the Phillies.
More information as it becomes available.
