Rocco wrapped up

NOT LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Rocco Baldelli’s mood was rather subdued after the game, and he didn’t have much to say about the bruise just above his right knee that knocked him out after three innings. His leg was wrapped from ankle to mid-thigh, so we couldn’t check it out ourselves, but it sounds like he’ll definitely be out tomorrow and possibly through the weekend.

“We’ll reevaluate it tomorrow, but I think he’s going to be fine,” said Joe Maddon. “I’m not certain that he’ll be able to play tomorrow, but overall he’s going to be fine, I believe.”

Baldelli said he had to look at video once he returned to the clubhouse to see how he hurt himself, and even then he wasn’t quite sure how he ended up in the wall as he chased down Orlando Cabrera’s double.

“I don’t really know what happened,” he said. “I know at some point it hit something pretty square, and it ended up being the wall.”

He was rather evasive about the prognosis.

“I’m going to go out and see how it feels tomorrow and that’s pretty much it,” he said, later adding: “Given a little bit of time, I think it’ll be fine.”
