Freel update

Ryan Freel was in the clubhouse Friday. He'll be examined at 6 p.m. by Dr. Tim Kremchek. It doesn't sound like Freel's going to playing any time soon.

He is still experiencing headaches and dizziness. He hasn't been told he had a concussion but he thinks he did.

"I was knocked out," he said. "If that's a concussion, I'm sure I did."

He's had at least "seven or six" concussions in the past, "maybe nine or 10."

"They haven't said anything about post-concussion syndrome," Freel said. "But that what it sounds like. I've never had the lingering effects like this before. It was always a couple of days.

Scary stuff.
