More on Freel
Now, it's clear that Ryan Freel is going OK long-term after the scary collision Monday, you probably want to know when he'll be back.
I don't think anyone knows. But my guess is it will be well after he's eligible for come of the disabled.
The trainers and doctors can't talk under the collective bargain agreement. Jerry Narron was asked if the Reds had anyway way of know how long Freel might be out.
"No idea," he said.
GM Wayne Krivsky said Freel's still "nauseous, with head pain and dizziness."
Those are the symptoms of concussion. Paul Daugherty did a column on Freel last summer after one of face plans on warning track. One of the things Freel said is "I've had plenty of concussions."
Given the concern about post-concussion syndrome these days, Freel could be out an extended time.
