Luke Scott “progressing” enough to avoid in-season surgery

When a partially torn shoulder labrum finally sent Luke Scott to the disabled list last week there was speculation that he might end up opting for season-ending surgery, but Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that he “seems to be progressing” and “surgery does not seem necessary at this point.”

Scott struggled mightily while trying to play through the injury, hitting just .223 with a .712 OPS overall and shutting things down in the middle of a 12-for-62 (.194) slump, yet he’s apparently hoping to come off the DL when eligible early next week.

In the meantime Nolan Reimold and Felix Pie will continue to form a quasi-platoon in left field. Reimold has started five of the seven games in Scott’s absence and the 27-year-old former top prospect has looked like his pre-2010 self with a .780 OPS in 27 games overall.

    I don’t know that there’s anything progressive about Luke Scott.

    isn’t he a Birther?

      He also likes hunting caged animals.

      I suspect he was hatched by Maisey Bird.

    Those leeches Luke swears by really work!

    He can produce a note from a doctor certifying that he is healthy, but I still won’t believe it.

      In order to produce such a note, he would first have to learn to read and write, wouldn’t he? And in order to do that, he would need an EDIT FUNCTION!

    “Luke Scott ‘progressing’ enough to avoid in-season surgery”…..

    …… Yet not enough to form a logical opinion.

    PS: I hear he spends his hunting time disussing politics with trasmus. Still laughing at El Bravo asking him what his favorite kind of cheese was by the way. I hate him as an opposing team’s fan, but I love him as a smart ass!
