geez, the kid is a natural CF.  understand wanting to give judge half a night off and all, but put fowler in a position to succeed and play him in CF and DH ellsbury.

So Fowler's injury is Girardi 's fault ? Good grief, man.

If your giving judge the night off on playing the field, then fowler was the only option for rf. He has played about 15 games this year in rF. Kind of unfair to blame Girardi. Hope  the injury is not that bad

I can see that, but then again, imagine if it was Judge who had crashed into that wall and went out on a stretcher.

God forbid. But this is still devastating for this kid. The look on Girardi's said it all.

judge is not that kind of player.

fowler with all due respect, goes all out and is reckless in a way he will go through a wall.

once he does recover (and I know the young man will), hope he plays with the same mentality.

He played all the OF positions. It's not Girardi's fault. Just went to hard into the fence. To pumped up his first game. Same injury Victor Cruz had.

4-6 months before sports resumed. hopefully he'll be up to speed by spring training.

Because of the rain the kid never had chance to get familiar with RF line and how much room there was.

All information via sportsinjuryclinic.net:


What is a ruptured patella tendon? 


Patella tendon ruptures are extremely painful and may be accompanied with an audible 'pop' at the time of injury. There will be swelling of the knee, particularly at the bottom of the knee over the tendon. The athlete will be unable to put weight on the knee or hold the knee in a straightened position. 


What happens?


The patella tendon is prone to rupturing in individuals with a history of patella tendon injury such as jumpers knee or degeneration due to age. Injuries of this type serve to weaken the patella tendon and in the event of strong eccentric quadriceps contraction which is where the muscle contracts while it lengthens such as landing from jump, the patella tendon may snap or rupture most commonly at the lower end of the patella.


What is the treatment?


If the patella tendon becomes completely ruptured across its width and thus surgical intervention is required to repair the damage. This involves suturing (stitching) the torn tendon.


Following surgery the patient will be advised on a specific rehabilitation plan which normally involves little or no weight-bearing on the affected knee and wearing a knee brace to prevent the knee from bending. This may be required for more than 6 weeks.


Once the knee brace has been removed exercises to regain full range of movement and build up the strength of the quadriceps muscle group should be carried out.


Rehabilitation from a patella tendon rupture is extremely slow and it may take between 6 and 12 months before the patient is able to return to sports.
