Bonds Is Sidelined With Tendinitis in Knee

May 25, 2003|From Associated Press

Barry Bonds is not expected to play in the rest of San Francisco's four-game series with Colorado after tests revealed tendinitis in his sore right knee.

Bonds was injured Friday night in the first game of the series when he crashed into the left-field wall at Coors Field chasing a fly ball hit by Preston Wilson in the fourth inning.

He stayed in the game but limped off the field after leading off the fifth inning with a single.

"Basically, Barry had a little bit of tendinitis going in and aggravated it on the attempted catch," trainer Stan Conte said.

"He had a fair amount of pain last night. He has less pain today. So basically we are listing him as day-to-day. The MRI was a very, very good result for us."

Pedro Martinez is not expected to make a start for the Boston Red Sox for another week, team doctor Bill Morgan said after the right-hander experienced slight discomfort in his right side while playing catch.

Although the pain was "nothing extreme," Morgan said, Martinez will not throw from a mound until he can throw without trouble and report back pain-free the next day.

Morgan said that's not expected to be until "the end of the week," which would push Martinez's next start into early June.

The Philadelphia Phillies have put right-hander Terry Adams on the restricted list, one day after he left the team in Montreal for personal reasons.
