CERVELLI OUT! SON OF A...
We just got finished telling you guys back in May that former New York Yankee Francisco Cervelli was on his way to have a nice little career with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was finally "home" and happy to contribute and he got a nice little 3 year extension with that club. Read GREAT NEWS FOR FRANCISCO CERVELLI! for more on that.
Now comes word that the dude is now out, hurt, with a broken hand. What are the chances? According to the Associated Press:
"Pirates have put catcher Francisco Cervelli on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand that is expected to sideline him four to six weeks.
The Pirates also acquired backup catcher Erik Kratz from the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday for cash."
When it comes to athletes, these things happen, but no question Cervelli will come back and continue his journey. I just feel bad. I love the guy's passion for the game. Tough break... pardon the pun.
