Oakland A's MLN: A's Banged Up
The latest injury is to A's second base prospect Adrian Cardenas, who has a slight tear in a thumb ligament. The injury is expected to keep him out at least a month.
Outfielder Rashun Dixon is dealing with a freak injury which has limited him for the past 10 days. He crashed into the outfield fence trying to catch a ball and wound-up with 15 stitches just above his eye.
The A's 2007 first-round pick James Simmons isn't in camp, as he is home still dealing with pain in his right shoulder. It still isn't determined what is wrong with Simmons' shoulder, but it is an injury that could keep him out for awhile.
There is better injury news on 2007 second-round pick Josh Horton, who arrived in camp today. Horton had off-season elbow surgery, but he has completed his throwing program and will now be able to start the process of getting ready for the season. He will start the year in extended spring training, however.
Lieppman also mentioned that the A's made four releases on Sunday: right-hander Steve Sharpe, Jason Fernandez and Juston Street and left-hander Nick Walters. The team will likely be making more cuts during the upcoming week.
