Berkman day-to-day with jammed right ankle


Update (4:45pm): Berkman’s day-to-day with a jammed right ankle. Not too bad, I guess.

4:00pm: Lance Berkman left today’s game with an apparent ankle injury after stepping on the back of Bryan Bullington’s foot as the Royals’ righthander covered first on a double play attempt. Marcus Thames took his place as the designated hitter. No word on the severity of the injury, but we’ll keep you updated.

Berkman was 0-for-2 on the day, but he was hitting .333/.444/.600 in his previous 18 plate appearances, so it’s obviously not an insignificant loss.

    This hasn’t been a good game at all…

    That’s exactly what the struggling offense needs. And if he misses time say hello to Cervelli the starting catcher.

    Jammed right ankle? I didn’t know that you can Jam your ankle. At any rate it sounds like something that can be easily taken care of.

  5. Chris says:

    When I told my friend that Berkman might be out for a while, without knowing the extent of the injury yet, he said it’s not a big deal because Berkman doesn’t seem to want to be in New York. He followed that by starting a conversation about Hideki Matsui that surely would have ended with “Cashman should have re-signed him,” but I walked away before he got that far. I’m sorry for this useless story, but there are too many irrational Yankee fans.
