Oh shit, CC hurt

Hit by line drive on pitching hand. Out of game in the 1st. Doesn't look good.

If C.C. is out for any extended period, the Tribe could get by with a four-man staff for a couple of weeks, then will Adam Miller get the call? I would rather see the Indians give Miller a shot at the #5 slot, than making a knee-jerk trade to get a veteran pitcher.

Whew, x-rays negative.

It should be noted, that while the negative x-rays are a big positive, this is only the first step. It will be interesting to see what the wrist looks like tomorrow (he got hit on the wristwacth area where the cuff would be on the under part of the forearm). CC has said it is swelling up really good, and he is icing it all night. TOmorrow is a huge key.....and we won't know for certain until an MRI is done (I believe an MRI is what found Hafner's injury).

CC says he is starting Monday, but if I just don't see it. I just don't see how he'll be ready to go in 5 days. I think what happens is everyone bumps up a day. No one has made their final start of the spring yet except for CC today, so wouldn't be a problem. THey could just skip Jake tomorrow in the game and have him do a bullpen session and everyone else should not be affected. If CC avoids the DL, I think they all bump up and CC gets pushed back to where the first 5th starter spot is absolutely needed (Sun April 8th).....which gives him about an extra week to heal.

Christ, This could possibly lead to another "excused" bad start for Mr. Wedge. Hope it isnt too serious.

Nah. The Indians have the pitching depth to where such an excuse should not exist. Now, it 2-3 more pitchers go down, or a couple of the important position players (where we have no depth) like Sizemore or Hafner go down, then yeah, unfortunately Wedge may get that excuse.

A lot can change overnight. Or with a second x-ray or MRI when the swelling goes down.

I recommend everyone read this Hafner story from last year before getting all excited:

http://cleveland.indians.mlb.com/news/a ... p&c_id=cle

Almost a carbon copy response to today's events:

The good news, however, was that X-rays on the hand were negative. Hafner is day to day.

"We'll assess his situation [Saturday] morning," head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff said. "After several ice treatments, [the swelling] lessened a bit."
...
"We worried that it might have been broken," manager Eric Wedge said. "But we caught a break."


Not trying to bring anyone down, but we are hardly out of the woods with CC. The good thing, is it wasn't his hand where there are so many tiny bones that could be hard to see in an x-ray because of the swelling....so we have that going for us.

I am cautiously optimistic Sabathia gets through this without a trip to the DL.

Hey, how about a recap of Mr Miller's spring for those of us who lost track of Adam.

He'd be next up, right?

If CC is out long-term (2+ months), I would think Miller would get the call. If CC is just short term DLed (15 days to a month), I think Slocum gets the call. They are not about to roster Miller and start his service/option clock unless two things happen: 1. they are certain he is ready and 2. there is an for-sure open vacancy in the starting rotation for the rest of the year or most of it.

Anyway, Miller has been incredible in spring. Check the Adam Miller thread out.....14 IP, no runs in spring training for the Indians. In minor league camp he had dialed it up to 100 MPH a few times. And, a scout recently was put into print in saying he is a sure-fire ace in the making.

Update on CC:


CC feels good this morning. Indians training staff just got done checking him out this morning, and said things look a lot better today. Another good sign that we dodged a bullet.

Final test will be tomorrow. CC is scheduled to throw off the mound, and if he can throw without having to compensate for the injury and mess his mechanics up (which puts him at risk for an arm injury) the Indians feel he will be ready to go on Monday. Right now, according to Wedge, it appears the worst case scenario is CC gets pushed back a few days. No word on who will replace CC on Monday if this happens as Wedge would not speculate since there are "several" scenarios....but mostly you'd see Westbrook bumped up and then everyone else would be on normal days rest since there is an off day Tues. They are supposed to make a decision by tomorrow.

Can't believe nobody has found a way to blame this on his weight yet.

Maybe if he wasn't so fat, he could have got out of the way?

I dunno, but this is one instance where I am glad CC is a little *soft.*

I'll never complain again about his weight. We are even now. For as many times as it arguably landed him on the DL, his weight saved him from a long DL trip yesterday. :mrgreen:

When did his weight cause him to go on the DL?

You really think the tiny amount of fat that would be on one's wrist helped him here? Stop.

I never contested it in the past, that his weight affected him. Just saying what others feel.

Most feel his weight caused him to have the oblique issues the last two years which shelved him in March/April in 2005/2006.

And, I was being sarcastic where because he is a little *soft*, his it helped cushion the blow of the hit yesterday. Most people have skin and bone in that area....he likely has a little more meat. :mrgreen:

Sheesh.
