Chad Tracy pulled up lame while running out a double Saturday, leaving the game in obvious pain, and it turns out the injury was a bad one.

Mark Zuckerman of reports that Tracy suffered a torn groin muscle that will require surgery. He’ll miss at least 6-8 weeks and the 32-year-old veteran could be sidelined for the entire season after manager Davey Johnson described the injury as the muscle tearing clear off the bone.

Washington remains in first place despite a ton of injuries and while not an everyday player Tracy had been a key bench bat and backup corner infielder with an .837 OPS in 55 plate appearances.

    Oh…darn…because he’s so useful when healthy…

      Actually, he was useful. Tracy had 12 RBI in only 49 AB.

    Another day, another injury. When are we going to catch a break?!

      It seems like there are way too many teams this year that could make a statement like that. I hate the injury bug and its contagious properties.

      Yup…join the club. We have t-shirts and a secret handshake.

      Well, Michael Morse should be coming back soon. And Jesus Flores’ ouchie wasn’t bad enough to warrant DL time.
