Collateral Damage: Mike Baxter Out Six Weeks, Ramon Ramirez To DL
During tonight’s post game interview, Terry Collins announced that outfielder Mike Baxter suffered a displaced right collar bone and an injured rib. He is expected to miss about six weeks.
Baxter slammed into the left field wall after making a tremendous catch to preserve Johan Santana’s no-hitter in the seventh inning. He awoke to a lot of pain this morning as a result.
The good news is that tests confirmed he did not suffer a concussion. Get back soon, Mike.
In addition, Collins also confirmed that reliever Ramon Ramirez injured his hamstring during last night’s no-hitter celebration and will also be placed on the disabled list.
The Mets are expected to announce replacements to the roster tomorrow before the game.
I’m going to take a shot and say that Robert Carson could be on his way back.
Incidentally, Chris Schwinden who was placed on waivers by the Mets on Friday, was claimed by the Toronto Blue Jays.
The 25-year-old Schwinden made two starts and one relief appearance for the Mets this season, going 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA. He is 0-3 with a 6.98 ERA overall in the majors.
Schwinden was 3-4 with a 2.59 ERA with Triple-A Buffalo. The Blue Jays assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.
