Jose Arredondo's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week

Dec 18, 2009, 2:55 PM EDT

Jose Arredondo is having a rough week.
First it was announced that he’ll need Tommy John elbow surgery, which will keep him out for the entire 2010 season. Following that news the Angels non-tendered him, dropping Arredondo from the 40-man roster. And now he’s apparently been stabbed. Seriously.
Prior to being non-tendered Arredondo angered the Angels by returning to his home in the Dominican Republic against the team’s wishes. Once there he reportedly was stabbed in the left arm, with his former agent saying that “it wasn’t that serious.”
Details after that are sketchy so far, but based on Sam Miller of the Orange County Register doing some nifty translating of Spanish-language reports Arredondo may have been attending some sort of party at a car wash, which is apparently something that goes on in San Pedro de Marcoris. TGIF, I guess.

    When I was in Orlando this summer watching the rookie league guys there was this rumor floating around that Arredondo had been involved in a fatal altercation, like the Giants prized rookie this year, but had paid his way out of it.
    I wonder how much that kind of thing had to do with Angels dropping him, in addition to his reported shoving a coach.

    This would be a slow week in America.

    Being small is no sin, if everybody else around you is taller, it is obvious you would desire to seem taller as well.
