Everett Out After Collision

Thursday, June 14, 2007

Jason Kendall hit a routine fly ball to short left field that brought shortstop Adam Everett out and Carlos Lee in. Due to miscommunication on both parts, Lee slid in and his knee made contact with the outside part of his leg, breaking the fibula. Everett had to be carted off the field after he was unable to stand up. The timetable is 4-8 weeks, but with an injury like this, I expect a return around early August. Mark Loretta will probably take over at shortstop for the time being. In 62 games, Everett was batting .230 with 2 HR and 15 RBI.
