Hurt or Not!: Easley ready to play!

Dominick DiFucciAnalyst ISeptember 25, 2008
While Ramon Martinez is starting at second base today, Damion Easley has informed Jerry Manuel he’s ready to start. Easley, who has been limited to pinch-hitting since straining his right quadriceps muscle against the Braves at Shea during the last home stand, labeled himself 80-85%. Bottom line: Easley has played more games than any active player who has never appeared in the postseason, and it’s now or never.

“Quite honestly, it’s not 100%,” Easley said. “It’s somewhere between 80 and 85%. I find that playable. I told Jerry, ‘You know what? All my chips are in the pot. Use them how you want to use them.’”
