Cora Could Be Out a While

ed feverCorrespondent IMay 19, 2009

Missed in last night's debacle (you know the game we handed to the Dodgers in the 11th), was an up date on Alex Cora's condition.

Cora is contenplating surgery on the tear in his thumb, if he decides to have surgery he could miss two months of the season.

The decision will be made on Friday, when the team heads east and Cora can see team doctors.
A downbeat Cora, meanwhile, told me he is considering surgery to repair the torn ligament in his right thumb—a procedure that would sideline him at least two months. A determination on surgery will be made Friday in New York. source NY Post
