When I reported Jose Morales’ injury, Twins GM Bill Smith told me that Morales had the injury for some time.
That, apparently, got some Twins fans fired up. They wanted to know why it’s taken so long for this to play out.
Here’s the deal: Morales had a sore wrist during the offseason, but apparently thought it would get better with rest. It didn’t. Morales informed the team about a week ago that his wrist was still bothering him. That’s when it was examined and surgery was determined. The Twins didn’t know there was a problem until recently.
That’s the deal. I’m out of town this week to work on a, `special assignment.’ I will monitor Twins news – but it will be warm where I’m monitoring it from. Hee hee!
