Troy Glaus


Glaus, who left Sunday's game with knee soreness, was back in the lineup Tuesday. "It was one of those bad days," Glaus said. "I couldn't get loose. Then it started hurting. I'm ready to go."


Glaus injured his knee swinging and missing at a pitch.


Glaus missed his third straight game Wednesday with a sore right knee. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he hopes the slugging third baseman will play Thursday when Toronto opens a four-game home series against the New York Yankees.


Due to tendinitis in his right knee, Glaus missed the Blue Jays' 10-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday. Glaus likely will miss at least one more game, Toronto manager John Gibbons said.


Glaus left Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners with what appeared to be a leg injury. He ran gingerly to first base and back to the dugout after grounding out.


Toronto's Glaus was selected to his fourth All-Star team on Sunday, as a reserve third baseman for the American League. Glaus is batting .248 with 22 homers and 57 RBIs this season.


Glaus hit two home runs and drove in four in Toronto's 8-3 victory over Oakland Thursday afternoon. Glaus hit a three-run homer off Kirk Saarloos (1-1) in the third inning and a solo shot in the fifth for his 21st career multihomer game. For the season, Glaus is hitting .274 with 12 homers and 30 RBIs in 33 games.


Glaus went 4-for-5 and stroked two doubles and two homers to lead Toronto to a 9-7 win over Baltimore Monday night. The Jays' third baseman had been mired in a 6-for-39 slide before erupting for 12 total bases, scoring four runs and driving in four more. He hit homers off Baltimore starter Erik Bedard and reliever LaTroy Hawkins.


Pending physical exams, Glaus was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in return for second baseman Orland Hudson and pitcher Miguel Batista.


The pain in Glaus' left knee kept the Arizona third baseman from playing in Sunday's 3-2 loss to San Francisco. The Diamondbacks' slugger was injured running out a grounder on Saturday and left the game. He already had been bothered by a strained tendon in the joint.


Glaus was forced to leave Saturday's loss to the Giants due to pain in his left knee. The injury appeared to occur in the third innings when the Arizona third baseman was running out a groundball. Glaus has been playing with a strained tendon in the joint, and until recently had been taking cortisone shots to help alleviate the discomfort. He has 30 home runs and 85 RBI this season.


Although he could have been called upon for pinch-hitting duties, Glaus did not play in Wednesday's meeting with the New York Mets, due to discomfort and swelling in his troublesome left knee. The Diamondbacks' third baseman, who has been battling knee problems the majority of the 2005 campaign, has been listed as day-to-day. He will be re-evaluated prior to Thursday's matchup to determine his availability.


After missing the Diamondbacks' previous two games with back spasms, Glaus was back in the Arizona lineup for Wednesday's meeting with the Milwaukee Brewers, going 0-for-3 with a walk and run scored. He has just one hit in his last 16 at-bats, dropping his season batting average to .252.


Glaus was a late scratch from the Diamondbacks' lineup for Monday night's meeting with the Milwaukee Brewers after experiencing back spasms earlier in the day. The third baseman, who was replaced by Alex Cintron, currently is listed as day-to-day, but the team does not expect him to miss much time. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.


The strained tendon is Glaus' knee isn't showing much improvement, but it isn't getting any worse either. As a result, the Diamondbacks' third baseman will try to play as much as possible, despite the pain, but could need an occasional day off. Glaus has received at least three cortisone shots in the knee this season to help ease the discomfort, and offseason surgery is a definite possibility.


Despite aggravating the strained tendon in his knee while trying to break up a double play on Saturday and missing Sunday's contest, Glaus returned to the Diamondbacks' lineup on Monday, going 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. The homer was the 200th of his major league career.


Glaus was held out of the Diamondbacks' lineup on Sunday after aggravating the strained tendon in his knee while trying to break up a double play the previous day. The team has not indicated how much time the third baseman will miss, but he is scheduled to receive another cortisone shot in the knee within the next several days. At this point, Glaus has been listed as day-to-day. Alex Cintron got the starting nod at the hot corner in his absence.


Glaus mildly aggravated his jammed right wrist in Monday's game against the San Francisco Giants, so Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin decided to give him Tuesday off as a precautionary measure. Barring any last-minute setbacks, the third baseman is expected to be back at the hot corner on Wednesday.


After watching Glaus take batting practice without any major problems, Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin included the third baseman in Monday's lineup against the San Francisco Giants. Glaus suffered a jammed right wrist when he collided with the Indians' Ronnie Belliard late in Sunday's meeting with Cleveland, but the injury obviously was not serious.


Glaus was removed from the Diamondbacks' lineup after colliding with the Indians' Ronnie Belliard late in Sunday's meeting with Cleveland. The third baseman was diagnosed with a jammed left wrist, and he is scheduled to be re-evaluated on Monday. The injury is not considered serious at this point, and the Diamondbacks have listed Glaus as day-to-day.


Glaus missed Sunday's game against the Rockies after receiving a cortisone injection in his left leg late on Saturday. The Diamondbacks' third baseman, who recently has been battling pain caused by a strained tendon behind his knee, was back in action on Tuesday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a loss to the Houston Astros.

Glaus' injury is not considered serious, and he hopes to avoid missing any more time going forward. He is batting .273 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI and three stolen bases in 37 games this season.


Reportedly, Glaus recently has been playing through pain caused by a strained tendon behind his left knee. The Diamondbacks' third baseman plans to be in the lineup on Friday and Saturday, but he's scheduled to receive a cortisone injection in the knee late Saturday and will miss Sunday's contest as a result.

The injury is not considered serious. With Monday being an offday, the Diamondbacks are hopeful that Glaus will be ready to go when they resume play on Tuesday. In 34 games this season, the slugger is batting .287 with 12 doubles, 10 home runs, 27 RBI and three stolen bases.


With a solo shot in the second inning of Sunday's victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, Glaus homered for the fourth consecutive game, tying a Diamondbacks franchise record. The third baseman, who signed a four-year, $45 million contract with Arizona during the offseason, matched the club mark held by Reggie Sanders. Through six contests, he is batting .280 with four homers, two doubles, one triple, eight RBI and a stolen base.

As a member of the Angels, Glaus was limited to just 58 games last year because of shoulder injuries. It appears those ailments are no longer a problem, and he has settled in with his new team nicely. He should see some good pitches in the middle of the Diamondbacks' batting order, sandwiched between Luis Gonzalez and Shawn Green.
