Jeremy Reed


The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is reporting that Reed is scheduled to take batting practice on Tuesday. Reed has been on the disabled list since early July after breaking his right thumb while diving for a ball.


Reed is scheduled to undergo surgery on Thursday to repair his broken right thumb and is expected to be out for eight weeks, the team said Wednesday. The Mariners' center fielder sustained the injury diving for a ball on Sunday and was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday. Dr. Carlton Keck, a hand specialist, will perform the surgery which involves a plate being placed in Reed's thumb.


Reed broke his thumb attempting to make a diving catch in the 11th inning of Seattle's 4-3 loss to Colorado on Sunday. The center fielder is headed to the 15-day disabled list and could be out for longer. Reed landed awkwardly and left the game immediately.


For a second straight April, Reed is off to a poor start. Matt Lawton started in center field Monday and Willie Bloomquist drew the assignment on Tuesday. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is reporting that Lawton will be in center Wednesday against the White Sox and Reed will play there Thursday.


With a single and double in the first two games of the season, Reed seems to be recuperating quickly from the wrist injury he suffered late in spring training. The Mariners' center fielder told the Tacoma News Tribune that the discomfort he feels isn't limiting him at the plate.


The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is reporting that a series of tests has revealed that Reed doesn't have a fractured bone in his wrist after all. The fracture detected in initial exams is at least 12 years old, and the Mariners' outfielder has nothing more than a sore hand. However old the fracture is that was detected, it's completely healed and Reed won't miss anywhere near the six weeks originally predicted.


Reed has a broken bone in his right wrist and could be lost to the Seattle Mariners for six weeks. Mariners GM Bill Bavasi said Reed fractured a small bone inside his wrist when he ran into the padded center-field fence at Peoria Sports Complex on Thursday night. Reed was pursuing a fifth-inning flyball hit by Arizona catcher Johnny Estrada.


An MRI exam on Wednesday revealed that Reed has a partially torn ligament in his left wrist. The Seattle center fielder is done for the year. He batted .254 with a .322 on-base percentage, 33 doubles and 61 runs scored in 141 games for the Mariners.


While it was thought that Reed wouldn't play again in 2005 because of a left wrist injury, the Seattle center fielder played Tuesday night for the first time since Friday. He doubled in five trips, and he's now batting .254 with 33 doubles and 61 runs scored in 141 games for the Mariners.


On Friday night in Chicago, Reed aggravated an injury to his left wrist and isn't likely to play the rest of the year. "It's been bothering him for a while, but now it's as bad as it's been all year," Seattle manager Mike Hargrove said. "It's just gotten to the point where we have to shut him down." Reed is batting .255 with 32 doubles and 60 runs scored in 140 games this season.


Reed suffered a mild concussion Friday night, crashing into the center-field wall in pursuit of a Grady Sizemore drive at Safeco Field. Reed stayed in the game for another inning, but he departed in the fifth and didn't play on Saturday. Reportedly he's written into the Seattle lineup for the Mariners' Sunday afternoon finale against Cleveland.


With Seattle playing interleague games in Florida and Washington this week, the DH option will not be available. It's likely that Raul Ibanez will move to left field for at least some of the games, so Randy Winn would move to center and share playing time with Reed.
