Corey Koskie


Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Corey Koskie saw Dr. Michael Collins, who also treated Giants catcher Mike Matheny, for his post-concussion symptoms, after banging his head on July 5. There is no timetable for Koskie's return.


The Brewers placed third baseman Koskie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 6, with post-traumatic concussion syndrome.


The Blue Jays activated Koskie from the disabled list, sending pitcher Chad Gaudin to Triple-A Syracuse to clear a space on the active roster. In his seven-game rehab stint at Syracuse, Koskie hit .240, with two doubles and two RBI.


The Blue Jays expect to activate Koskie from the disabled list in time for him to re-join the parent club on Tuesday. The Toronto third baseman has been out of the lineup since May 19 with a broken thumb and torn ligaments in his right hand. He has spent the past week at a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse. Koskie, a free-agent signing from Minnesota this past offseason, injured the hand while sliding into second base against the Twins.


Koskie, who broke his right thumb and suffered ligament damage in mid-May, is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend. The 32-year-old third baseman is expected to rejoin the Toronto Blue Jays in a week or so. When he went down, he was batting .248 with seven home runs and 16 RBI in 38 games.


Hitting off a tee, Koskie swung a bat for the first time since he went on the disabled list with a broken right thumb and ligament damage on May 19. The Toronto third baseman hopes to be back before the end of July, and how he feels on Wednesday after Tuesday's swings may impact his anticipated return. Koskie was batting .248 with seven home runs and 16 RBI in 38 games when he was injured.


Koskie's broken right thumb, which required surgery in late May, may keep the Toronto third baseman out until the end of July. That's the word from Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi. The Jays may know more about Koskie's anticipated return when he gets the cast off his right hand in a week.


As anticipated, Koskie had surgery on his broken right thumb Wednesday. The Toronto third baseman, who is batting .248 with seven home runs and 16 RBI, is expected to be out at least another month.


Koskie will undergo surgery on his broken right thumb next week and is expected to miss at least a month. Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi said that if everything goes well, the Jays' third baseman probably would miss a total of six weeks.


Koskie fractured his right thumb in Toronto's Thursday afternoon loss at Minnesota. The Jays' third baseman was injured at second base, where he collided with Twins second sacker Luis Rivas while attempting to tag up on a flyball. X-rays at a Twin Cities hospital located the fracture.


Koskie sat out Toronto's loss to Oakland Wednesday night because of a stiff neck. The injury is believed to be minor, and the Jays' third baseman could be back in the lineup when the Jays open a four-game set in Texas on Thursday.

Hitting in the Rangers' home park can make almost anyone feel better. Koskie is a .308 hitter there in 29 games. For the 2005 season, he is 6-for-27 (.222) with a homer.
