  • Moises Alou to have hernia surgery

    My dad just saw on the ESPN ticker that Alou is to have hernia surgery.

    ESPN.com has something up now

    PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- New York Mets left fielder Moises Alou will have surgery for a hernia and miss the start of the season.

    The oft-injured Alou left spring training camp Wednesday and was sent back to New York for tests on his sore right groin. He is scheduled to have the surgery on Thursday.

    Alou is expected to resume baseball activities in four to six weeks, making it likely he'll be sidelined for at least most of April.

    MLB.com reported on Wednesday that Alou was injured in a spring game against Atlanta on Monday.

    "After the game, he felt it more and more," Mets general manager Omar Minaya said, according to the Web site. "He felt some more discomfort [Tuesday], and [Wednesday] he also felt discomfort."

    The 41-year-old Alou batted .341 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs in 87 games last season, when he missed a long stretch of games with a quadriceps injury.

    "We came into the season with a track record of Alou, knowing that Alou was going to give us a certain amount of games," Minaya said, according to MLB.com. "We felt that the number of games he was going to give us would be very productive games, and I think that bore out last year."
    Take out April, probably a week in May to get back in shape and this is looking pretty bad.

        endy will prob be the every day LF until alou gets back..and that means a bench spot opened up...so Pagan or Clark prob gets it (granted Omar doesnt sign someone)

          Minaya needs to trade for someone. Alou won't play at all April and will probably be out most of May. This is something that will likely take awhile for him to recover from and then miss more time for. We can't have Angel Pagan, Endy (who is becoming as injury prone) or Brady Clark playing most of that time. He should go out and get someone like Juan Rivera or Kevin Millar.

            That Marcus Thames for Jorge Sosa rumor might come true soon...

            EDIT: Though Matt Murton would make more sense now since he can hit both lefties and righties...could hurt to have both though.

              Geez, if the wind blows the wrong way this guy gets hurt! He's more fragile than glass

              Well, we're only 2 weeks into spring, but Pagan is making a great case to be on the roster...

                  You think they can afford to acquire both?

                      I got a similar feeling that Omar will make a run at one of the big-name old free agents still out there. We all knew this was a risk when Gomez went in the Santana deal, but it sucks to lose an outfielder for a while and not have a young backup. Let's hope they don't hit the panic button and make a dumb trade (F-Mart for pretty much anyone).

                          The guys we trade for don't HAVE to be guys we've already had.

                          Funny I remember when they got Nady all the complaints from fans because he was just a platoon player.

                            Pagan's all we need. He's making a name for himself in spring training.
