Drew Has Herniated Disc In His Back

Joe McDonald of the Providence Journal has the scoop:
The Red Sox received an unpleasant surprise Friday afternoon when they learned outfielder J.D. Drew is suffering from a herniated disc in his back.

Drew has suffered from chronic back pain throughout his career and had a flareup last Sunday at Fenway Park against Toronto. ... There's no word on how long he'll be sidelined.

The problem is similar to an injury he had earlier in his career with the Cardinals. While in St. Louis, Drew tore the sheath three-quarters of the way around his spine in the same area where he now has the herniated disc. The Red Sox are expecting a full medical report sometime Friday evening.

SoSHer Harry Hooper reports (4:55 PM): Merloni took a jab at Drew on WEEI this afternoon, "He won't play unless he's 120%."

From everything I've heard, Mockery is doing a good job with NESN. He should be above this kind of shit.

Has John Henry scheduled a news conference to whine and cry about how some of his players are hurt?

That's what the owners of classy organizations do, right?

The official release has been posted to Meryl Masterson's blog. Oh, wait...

ish posted in the game thread:

Francona, on Drew: "We're actually reassured. When it first came out we said 'uh oh', but now it's reassuring that it hasn't gotten worse."
Also talked about muscle spasms and they're just working to calm it down. Doesn't sound too bad.
