Luke Scott gets cortisone shot for “mild” hamstring injury

Recovering from shoulder surgery was the big question mark facing Luke Scott this season and has him limited to designated hitter duties for the Rays, but now his hamstring is a problem as well.

Scott left Sunday’s game with what he called a “mild” hamstring strain and an MRI exam revealed no major damage, but he needed a cortisone injection yesterday.

Joe Maddon told Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Tribune that Scott is unlikely to play for at least the next 3-4 days and it’s worth noting that Scott has a history of hamstring problems that have previously led to time on the disabled list.

Scott also expressed some worries about how cold weather during the Rays’ lengthy road trip could make the injury worse, so it won’t be surprising if the team plays it very cautiously with his timetable.

      Dang. urteamsux52, my friend, I have to say that this is major step back. Several issues: 1) Lacks punctuation 2) Lacks capitalization & 3) Yankees won last night. However, in spite of the word “shout” when you clearly meant “shut”, all words, that are in fact real words, are spelled correctly. Nice job. Now, where is Mr. Period? Where is Mr. Shift Key? Where is Mr. Fact Check? Lets get those simple elements correct, then we can engage is stunning repartee with Mr. Yankeesgameday. Also, Mr. Reply Button is your friend: make use of him. Good luck, buddy.

    I always skip the write up and go straight to the comments section of Luke Scott posts.

    Luke Scott was more concerned with verifying the doctor wasn’t an illegal than verifying the drug wasn’t an illegal.

    I hope he had a certificate showing that the shot was from America.
