    Bergolla may start on disabled list (2/23)

    My question is this: if the problem started in winter ball, why on earth didn't he have it checked out?

    2/23/06 - Marc's Blog

    SARASOTA -- William Bergolla reported to camp with some soreness in his abdomen, after dealing with the same problem during winter ball this year in Venezuela. An MRI has revealed Bergolla has a hernia. The infielder is scheduled to see a specialist here in town tomorrow.

    "The only way that this is going to be fixed is through surgery," said Reds trainer Mark Mann. "We’ll have a better idea as far as time in regards to how long he’ll miss after tomorrow’s appointment."

    However it goes there, Bergolla is all but guaranteed to begin the year on the disabled list. He was a longshot to make the roster anyway, especially considering he still has an option remaining.

    In other medical news today, Ryan Wagner showed up this morning with a 101-degree fever and was immediately sent home.

    I think that would be my reason to wait as well. Or maybe he has a bit of a man crush for Doc Hollywood?

    That might be it right there. That'd be an interesting pickup line, "Hey, baby, can you fix my hernia?"

    Good point. I didn't think of that.

    Maybee he thought if he told the Reds they would go out and sign an under performing over the hill vet to take away his chance at making the club.

    Oh wait, they did that. Twice.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    EARLY SETBACKS - The Reds made it through the first few days of camp without any significant injuries, but it was only a matter of time before something happened.

    This year's first victim is infielder William Bergolla, who will see a specialist in Sarasota today after an MRI revealed he has a hernia. Bergolla reported some problems with his abdomen during winter ball in Venezuela but played through it. When the time came for his physical Wednesday morning, Reds physicians noted the pain on the right side of Bergolla's abdomen and had it checked out.

    No matter how today's doctor's appointment goes, Bergolla appears ticketed to open the season on the disabled list.

    "The only way that this is going to be fixed is through surgery," said Reds trainer Mark Mann. "We'll have a better idea as far as time in regards to how long he'll miss after tomorrow's appointment."

    According to Mann, Bergolla had surgery to repair a hernia on his left side two years ago.

    The Reds had another brief medical scare Thursday morning, but it turned out not to be too serious. Left-hander Kent Mercker was warming up for his scheduled live batting practice session but kept feeling stiffness and soreness in the muscles of his shoulder and upper back. Mercker walked off the mound and, after some discussion with the medical staff, headed for the clubhouse.

    "He really didn't feel like he was getting loose to where he needed to be to throw live BP, so we just backed him down," Mann said. "He had (a similar problem) last spring. It's something that just worked itself out with some treatment and some stretching over the course of a few days."

    Mann said he doesn't think the current problem is anything serious and said Mercker will be reevaluated today.

    In addition, it seems flu-like symptoms are making the rounds in the clubhouse again. Several players and coaches were felled by the bug last spring, and bench coach Bucky Dent and outfielder DeWayne Wise have felt under the weather so far this spring. Thursday, reliever Ryan Wagner reported to camp with a 101-degree temperature and was immediately sent home.

    BERGOLLA OUT: Second baseman William Bergolla has a hernia that needs to be surgically repaired. The Reds don't know exactly how long he'll be out.

    "We'll know better after he see the doctor," trainer Mark Mann said.

    The hernia was discovered in a pre-camp physical.

    Bergolla, 23, played 17 games for the Reds last year, hitting .132. He hit .293 with two home runs, 38 RBI and 16 steals in 98 games for Triple-A Louisville.

    With the addition of Tony Womack to an already crowded field at second base, Bergolla had almost no chance of making the team.

    Hopefully Aurillia will start at second base over Womack.

    And hopefully Ryan Freel will start over Aurillia.

    I know you guys like Freel, but I think Aurillia is a better choice for second base. Freel does not seem to play well for extended periods of time. Also, I think it would be best if Freel concentrated on playing in the outfield.
