HOUSTON – Pirates center fielder Chris Duffy will visit a specialist next week to further examine his ailing left shoulder.
The results of an MRI taken earlier this week, disclosed today, showed what the team described as “normal wear and tear” in the rotator cuff. The immediate plan was to wait for the examination to determine whether he can continue rehabilitation from a sprained left ankle in
Bradenton, Fla.
Dr. Lewis Yocum of California will perform the examination Wednesday.
My Take: Things aren’t looking good for Duffy. While he is still injured, Nate McLouth is tearing it up for the Pirates. With McCutchen on his way to the big leagues shortly, I think Duffy’s career with the Pirates may have come to an end.
