Have you seen the numbers the OF at Louisville has put up this season? McDonald, Gomes, Stubbs, Hopper, Bankston, Heisey? Playing on a team with too many players deserving of playing time cannot be held against Dorn. They even tried him at 1B to get him in the lineup. As far as being hurt, yes, he has a hip bruise. It hasn't kept him out long. But he wasn't put on the DL.
