Report: Bryan Morris has toe surgery

From Baseball America’s Prospects Blog:

Pirates righthander Bryan Morris had surgery to repair a ligament in his right big toe and will miss at least the first month of the 2009 season, Pirates correspondent John Perrotto reports. The 21-year-old Morris joined the organization at the 2008 trade deadline in the three-team deal that sent Jason Bay to the Red Sox and Manny Ramirez to the Dodgers.

No word on how he actually hurt the toe, but I suppose that’s immaterial at this point. This can’t be the sort of news the Pirates want to hear about Morris, especially after he struggled with Hickory after the trade and missed some time with bicep problems.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
