5/13 MLB Rumors: Furcal Injury Update

May 13th 2011 16:00
Rafael Furcal broke his thumb on April 11, and he will begin his rehab assignment. Furcal is expected to return next week, but manager Don Mattingly says that it will be days and not weeks. Jamey Carroll has hit surprisingly well so far, but he will definitely come back down to earth. His BABIP is over his career average, and it is always good to get the better player back (Furcal). Carroll can hit for average, but he has absolutely no pop. The Dodgers (18-20) could really use Furcal back in the lineup.

Steve Cohen sent in a $200 million dollar bid for 49% of the Mets, but there has been a break in negotiations. It seems like Cohen wants to hold a lot of control over how the Mets run their day-to-day business. Talks are still going on, and the Mets obviously want to get a deal done with Cohen quickly. For now, the Mets can rejoice a powerful win over the Rockies thanks to a trio of dingers from Carlos Beltran. Beltran has been a pleasant surprise this year, and he's been incredible with 8 dingers at a batting average (.295) that will stay where it is. He might be traded if the Mets can eat up his huge contract as the mets obviously need some cash.

Eric Chavez was injured once again, but the pleasant surprise for the other team in New York doesn't have as bad of an injury as once feared. It was said that he broke his foot on Cinco de Mayo against the Tigers, but Chavez only has a bone bruise. He's expected to miss anywhere from 2-3 weeks, and the .303 hitter recently had his walking boot removed. I say he finishes off the year with a .284 batting average along with an above average season as a fielder. He's been at his best against changeups, but he's struggled against curveballs this year.
