Boston Red Sox catcher David Ross was supposed to start a spring training game last week, but that was changed thanks to a foot problem.
According to Red Sox manager John Farrell, “He’s got a left foot issue that he’s dealing with…the MRI showed that there’s nothing structurally going on here. He’s got some inflammation in a tendon, so we’ve got to back him off a couple of days. It’s likely and everything projects to him being behind the plate on Friday.”
That’s a good plan. Too many times, whether your a professional athlete or weekend warrior, individuals will push themselves through pain. Pain is not normal. Foot pain is not normal. It’s your body trying to tell you something…listen to it!
Ross isn’t the only Red Sox catcher dealing with a problem. A.J. Pierzynski rolled his left ankle for the second time this spring during last Monday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Pierzynski,like Ross, is expected to make a full recovery…good news! Good luck guys!
