Crede Hurt

Coming into this spring, all the concern with Joe Crede centered on the third basemans surgically-repaired back.

Now its his left hand.

Taking live batting practice on the first day that position players were expected into camp, Crede was plunked on the hand by guess who? Mike MacDougal.

Crede was golf-carted to the Kino Hospital next door to the facility by head trainer Herm Schneider, had the hand X-rayed and was back in 30 minutes with as good of news as he could have hoped for.

Its not broken, Crede said.

The hand was obviously swollen and will be looked at again on Friday. As far as how long Crede will be on the shelf with the injury, that will also be determined on Friday.

Either way, it was not how the free agent-to-be wanted to start spring training off.
