Orioles’ Luke Scott suffers groin injury

The Orioles are going to be without one of their main sluggers for the next couple of days.

Or maybe longer.

According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, outfielder Luke Scott had to be lifted from Saturday night’s game — the same game that saw Rays third baseman Evan Longoria suffer an oblique injury — due to some kind of groin problem.

Scott apparently suffered the groin injury while pushing out of the batter’s box on a fielder’s choice groundout in the seventh inning. Felix Pie came on to pinch-run and then stayed in left field, making a throw that helped the O’s win the game.

Scott served primarily as Baltimore’s designated hitter last season, but was moved back to the outfield this winter when Vladimir Guerrero was signed. That position change may mean a lengthier recovery time if Scott suffered a muscle strain or something more serious.

UPDATE: Scott told the Sun‘s Jeff Zrebiec that he’s mostly fine and expects to play Wednesday.

    I don’t think this “injury” should be believed without an injury certificate shown to the public. And, once this certificate is shown, I for one, will continue to demand said certificate and claim it was never provided.

      Dang it, I was about twenty seconds late.

        A groin injury? Damn, that’s awfully close to his brain – barely four inches from his rectum!

      No, I want to see the long form Certificate of Injury; the one with Bud’s signature not his mommy’s.

    I wish nothing but ill will on this clown. I’m not necessarily an Obama guy but be against the president because you dislike his political views, not because you hate his racial backround. It’s not about what country he was born in for these people. That claim is code for “I hate that we have a black president”. Show mw 100 “birthers” and I’ll show you 100 losers.

      Yea, that would be why Scott took Felix Pie under his wing a couple of seasons ago and why Felix is Scott’s best friend on the team. Because you know, Scott has issues with foreigners and dark skinned folk.
