    Blue Jays third baseman Scott Rolen injures finger, could miss season

    AP - Mar 23, 4:32 pm EDT
    (AP)—Scott Rolen broke his finger during a fielding drill Sunday, and the Toronto Blue Jays’ new third baseman might not be available for opening day.

    Rolen was taking grounders in the morning on a back field when a ball hit him on the fingernail.

    “It ripped his nail completely off his finger,” general manager J.P. Ricciardi said.

    Rolen also broke the bone above the top knuckle on his right middle finger. It’s unclear how long he will be out.

    “It’s a non-displaced fracture, which is the good news,” Ricciardi said.

    Rolen was acquired from St. Louis this offseason for fellow third baseman Troy Glaus in a swap of oft-injured All-Stars. Rolen was to travel to Baltimore on Sunday night to see Dr. Thomas Graham, the hand specialist who treated Toronto catcher Gregg Zaun’s injured right thumb last season.

    “He will see the specialist (Monday) and we will know more,” Ricciardi said. “The fracture is actually not the problem. You can play with a fracture, it’s just losing the nail.”

    Ricciardi is optimistic his new third baseman won’t be out too long.

              It'll be the broken knuckle that hampers his play upon healing.

              I lost a nail after getting a finger smashed @ work, and it just hurt. It wasn't like I missed any time.

              It'll take the whole season to grow back the nail, but really....

                He should consult with Pavol Demitra to learn his magic finger routine.

                  Was the ball hit by Hee Sop Choi or Alex Cintron?

                        Maybe they forgot "opener" at the end of the headline.

                        It'd be comical if it were season-ending but I don't think a fracture takes 6 months to heal unless the bone comes ripping out through the skin.

                          That's a serious injury. He should be out 8-10 weeks, then be day-to-day from there on out.

                            Yeah, you're right. I think opener was dropped off the headline.

                            Ripping off a nail hurts like a mother effer.
