According to Trot, he will be sidelined for 5-7 days with a groin strain. He injured it trying to catch a double. He batted twice before smartly pulling himself out of the game. I'm glad Trot decided to be careful about his leg. We need him healthy on this team for the long run.
Willy Mo Pena, Adam Stern, and Dustin Mohr will probably fill in for Crisp and Nixon while they are out. The effects of this will probably be minimal as long as the injuries don't become complicated. These guys aren't named Nomar Garciaparra so they are probably going to come back when expected.
