Hak-Ju Lee Injured

Probably the most fun-to-watch Durham Bull of this young season, shortstop Hak-Ju Lee, has been sent to Florida to have his knee examined after a crash at second base last night. Lee was caught in the middle of an awkward second-to-short-to-first double play attempt. All we could see from our seats was the collision between Norfolk baserunner Travis Ishikawa and Lee. Lee was immediately writhing on the ground and Ishikawa was holding his nose. Lee was helped off the field, putting no weight at all on his left leg. According to the Herald-Sun, Ishikawa broke his nose in the incident. He also left the game.

Durham coach Dave Myers is quoted as saying, “Right now, we know he’s got a couple of torn ligaments, and he’s going to Tampa to be further evaluated.”

So far, the most complete coverage we’ve found is in this article in today’s Herald-Sun; however, Rays Index has video. Not sure how he was able to pull that. And some reportage.
