If Placido Polanco could grade his Monday, he would say it was a pretty crappy Monday.
Polanco was diagnosed with a sport hernia, according to the beat guys on Twitter. He will have his hernia evaluated on Friday.
Polanco will receive a shot to see if it would reduce the hernia. “If the shot doesn’t work, surgery is possible. Wouldn’t end his season, Amaro says” tweeted Matt Gelb 20 minutes ago.
The news comes only after Polanco found out he would be fined for his participation in a brawl last Friday between the Phillies and Giants. Polanco walked towards home plate when teammate Shane Victorino and Giants pitcher Ramon Ramirez were having words and was tackled by Giants catcher Eli Whiteside.
