Yesterday we had the Cueto rumor and the report that Cordero is experiencing “stiffness” in his ankle (and being completely ineffective (which may or may not be related)…and today, John Fay reports:

Edwin Encarnacion was out of the lineup again Monday with a sore left wrist. It was his fifth straight day out of the lineup.

“It’s just of matter of not having to rush it,” he said.

Encarnacion missed five games with a similar injury last year.

I hope this is true, but after 5 days, I’m concerned. Gonzalez is far from a sure thing at SS and if Encarnacion would be hurt at 3B, this team would be in dire straits. And with this team’s medical staff’s history….lets just say it makes me nervous.
