Minor Surgery For Redding

Pitcher Tim Redding is scheduled to have minor surgery on his left foot this Friday, the Nationals announced today. The surgery, performed by new team medical director Dr. Wiemi Douoguih and Union Memorial Hospital (Baltimore) foot/ankle specialist Lew Schon, will aim to repair damage to the bone in the joint at the base of Redding's second toe.

Redding, the team said, is expected to be ready to go by the start of spring training.

Hmmm, that's the plant foot for a RHP - what was the problem (bone spur, dislocation, fracture)? How heavily will this weigh in Arbitration?

More important, did he win 10 games with a hurt foot? And if so, will he be even better now? Hope so. Love the guy.

Maybe he needs to look at a different brand of spikes?

re-starting convo from the last post:

Milledge/Rhinehart/Detwiler to the Padres for Adrian Gonzalez, and we skip Tex and spend that FA money elsewhere.


we'll probably have to add someone else to that, who should it be?

I'd love to have Adrian Gonzalez here; he'd be a great fit. The three (3) guys you propose, I might be willing to give up. But really, I can't see adding even more to that pile. You've already got a major-league center fielder and a pretty good lefty pitcher in there. What more do they need?

We have a Wiemi sighting!

That is going to be one busy dude this year.

"Redding, the team said, is expected to be ready to go by the start of spring training."

This sounds like last year's code for he will be out 12-18 months. I hope that is not the case but whenever I see surgery and a statement from the Nats "not to worry about it" I start to worry about it.
