Lucas headed to DL with non-displaced fracture in left hand; Solano being recalled

JUPITER -- Tough break for Ed Lucas.

X-rays have revealed a non-displaced fracture in his left hand and he will be heading to the disabled list according to manager Mike Redmond

Lucas had won a spot on the 25-man roster. Donovan Solano, told earlier today he was heading back to Triple A New Orleans, will be recalled to the roster.

This is his second injury this spring. He strained a quad playing against the Tigers.

But his one really hurts because he was in line to make his first Opening Day roster after spending 10 years in the minors. Lucas was struck in the hand in the eighth inning by a Scott McGregor pitch.

By the time Lucas is healed, Furcal will be back to the DL for the 2nd time.

So, no big deal.


Solano was the right choice anyway. Feel bad for Lucas though. Seems like a dedicated guy. Tough luck.

Whatever happened to Juan Yanes?

Watched todays entire game on TV. Impressions follow:
We are blessed with great TV announcers. The Cardinal broadcasters literally gave me a headache. They simply never shut up. The game was secondary to them.
Lugas made a beautiful play at SS from deep in the hole.
Dietrich turned two cinch double play balls into single outs. Maybe the goggles didn't help. His swig was good, even against a tough lefthander.
Ozuna swung and missed three pitches in his first AB, none of which were in the strike zone. However, from that point on he did well.
Hand did his job but wasn't as effective as his numbers would indicate.
Stanton simply won't go for a simple base hit with a runner on 2B. He kept flailing away, and frankly, he still has a rookie's pitch selection. I saw no improvement over last year. Not good!
