Amezaga out 4-6 weeks

A left knee sprain will keep versatile Alfredo Amezaga out four-to-six weeks.

Amezaga was examined in Miami on Tuesday by Dr. Lee Kaplan. The injury occurred while Amezaga was playing for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. On Sunday night, Amezaga went 2-for-5 against Australia. After the game, he felt stiffness in his left knee.

He returned to Miami on Monday, and saw the doctor on Tuesday.

With Amezaga out, Robert Andino and Emilio Bonifacio are candidates to fill his role as a all-purpose ultility player.

Safe to say the 5 bench slots are this?
1. Rabelo
2. Helms
3. McPherson
4. Andino (out of options, for IF defense)
5. Carroll (for OF defense)

Not sure those are the moves we’ll see, because this roster can be in flux. Still think some suprises are on the way.


You’ve got us curious, Joe! You referring to the possibility of Pudge? Or some other things being worked on?

Pudge is very real. I think a lefty reliever also could be in the works.
