Emmanuel Burris out again with fractured foot

burris head.JPGEmmanuel Burris was given a bit of bad news Saturday evening.  According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants utilityman was diagnosed with a re-fracture of a bone in his left foot and will be in a walking boot for the next four weeks.

It’s safe to say that Burris won’t be included on the Giants’ Opening Day 25-man roster, and he may have to work his way through the minors once he’s healthy. 

The 25-year-old appeared at second base, shortstop and in the outfield last season for the Giants, and is a .262/.328/.301 hitter over 442 major league at-bats.  He suffered the same injury last summer and even underwent season-ending surgery to address the issue.  Tough break.
