Lately, the Reds have had some bad luck on the injury front, in addition to the other varieties of bad luck they were already experiencing:
- Brandon Phillips, who just came back from that ankle sprain, now apparently has an elbow like a balloon thanks to a pitch to it last night. I don’t know if he’ll be pinch-hit-homering right off an injury like that.
- Logan Ondrusek went on the 15-day DL yesterday with a strained right forearm. If only he’d been the problem.
- Zack Cozart still isn’t back from that hyperextended elbow, and may be considering surgery. I don’t know what surgery you do for a hyperextended elbow, but hopefully it’s more successful than the surgery countless kids have tried to give to their hyperextended Slinkies.
Here’s hoping for a change in the team’s luck, injury related and otherwise. In the post-game tonight, Joey Votto said that he still thinks the team can turn the season around. if he can avoid being the next one hurt, maybe so.
