Internally, at least. From MLB.com’s Amanda Brahman.
Although Padres trainer Todd Hutcheson said P Chan Ho Park will likely undergo a blood transfusion on Thursday, Park will likely be healthy enough to come off the disabled list when he is eligible on Aug. 10.
“By Friday or Saturday, he’s going to feel a ton better than he does right now,” said Hutcheson.
After having some abdominal pain in Colorado, the last leg of their most recent road trip, and being too exhausted to throw his bullpen session, Park underwent some tests and found he had some internal bleeding in the small intestine.
The bleeding stopped on its own, as doctors were trying to find the source and the cause. As a result of all the testing, Park found out he was anemic, and the Padres placed him on the 15-day disabled list, unsure of how long their veteran right-hander would be out.
Admittedly, this isn’t the most crucial story of the night, not compared to the Phillies closing to within 3 1/2 games of the Wild Card lead despite the recent clearance sale. But I was sick on an airplane most of the evening, and really didn’t feel comfortable with a headline of “Fausto Carmona Is Not Glue”.
