De Aza update

You know how we were told his ankle was just sprained, it turns out that was incorrect.

Don't look for Opening Day center fielder Alejandro De Aza in the lineup anytime soon.

On the disabled list since April 18, De Aza appears to be dealing with a fractured ankle, not just a sprain. He first suffered the injury during the season-opening series at Washington and played through it for more than a week.

Reggie Abercrombie and Alfredo Amezaga will continue splitting time in center.

It's going to be a while.
