Walking wounded report

Here is the Monday edition of the walking wounded report.

First up: Matt Treanor.

Treanor made his first start Sunday since Aug. 24, but it didn’t last very long. He left the game in the second inning after fouling a ball off his left knee.

 

Treanor was examined by the Cardinals’ medical team. An X-ray showed a deep bone bruise, and he is listed as day-to-day.

 

“I feel snake-bitten right now, to be honest with you,” Treanor said. “I haven’t played in a while, and (I) get a chance to get back there, and I’m not able to do anything for the club. It’s very frustrating.”

Deep bone bruises not only hurt, but they take awhile to heal.

Last in the rotation: Kevin Gregg.

Kevin Gregg pitched off a bullpen mound Sunday and said that, in a best-case scenario, he could be ready to pitch again within a few days. Gregg has been out since Aug. 29 with inflammation in his left knee.

''I want to pitch, and I want to pitch now,'' Gregg said. ``But [the Marlins] are going to look at it from a different perspective.''

The Marlins want to make sure everything is fine with Gregg's knee before putting him back on the mound. Manager Fredi Gonzalez has informed him he won't be given a heavy workload when he returns.

''If I pitch two days in a row, I'll probably have the third day off,'' Gregg said.

Gregg is going to have do more one than one bullpen session before he returns.  However, it doesn't take relievers as long to return as it does starters. but he needs to prove he is healthy.  Especially since his attempts at pitching on a bum knee, were less than....shall we say, adequate.

And that concludes today's Walking Wounded Report.
