Paul Janish at a Louisville Bats game last Sunday
This has turned out to be a bad year for the good men of Rice who are in pro baseball. Lance Berkman will be out up to 10 weeks
after knee surgery, and rumor is he's considering retirement. Jeff Niemann broke his leg
and will be out 4-6 weeks. Anthony Rendon is likely done for the season
after breaking his ankle. And Paul Janish is still on the DL with his broken wrist.
I saw a couple of Bats games last weekend. Janish was dressed but did not play. He spent the games standing at the dugout rail, watching the game. The cast he was reportedly wearing a couple of weeks earlier was gone. Instead, he had a black brace on the wrist. (See photo above.)
The original estimate was 4-6 weeks, and it's been just about 4 weeks. Matt Andrews, the Bats radio announcer, said tonight that Janish is "a couple of weeks away." It always takes longer than predicted, so I'm not surprised.
