"Rocco Baldelli Misdiagnosed?
By Tim Dierkes [December 16 at 11:36pm CST]
From Ken Bell of ABC6 out of Rhode Island:
Great news for Rocco Baldelli. A visit to the Cleveland clinic last week revealed that doctors had misdiagnosed his illness. Baldelli missed much of last season, and when he did play, he was limited because of extreme fatigue. Doctors thought it was mitochondrial disorder, which can be fatal. The Baldelli family told me tonight that the Cleveland clinic diagnosed his condition as channelopathy, a non-progressive, highly treatable disease.
Bell adds that the Red Sox have not contacted Baldelli, who is a free agent."
Wow this is great news, Walt should be on the phone now to get him...
