Blake Swihart Could Be Out Until Beginning Of August
Chalk up another one for the crack Red Sox medical staff. The latest word on the 'severe left ankle sprain' of Blake Swihart is that the OF/C is likely out until the beginning of August. Remember the "two week immobilization" that was first forecast? Scratch that. The four week forecast? Scratch that. And, frankly, don't pin your hopes on early August either—this could be a season-ending injury. Neither Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, or the otherDoctor Howard could be reached for comment.
