Swollen thumb limited Carlos Corporan


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Astros catcher Carlos Corporan has been limited a bruised right thumb over the last two months, MLB.com reports Thursday.

Coporan injured the thumb in mid-June and has been trying to deal with the injury by adding extra padding while catching. The fact that he does not play everyday has helped him avoid the DL, but this might be an injury he has to deal with for the rest of the season.

"I'm trying to do my best and take some medicine and try to get the best treatment I have for my thumb," he said. "The [training staff] has been doing a pretty good job. They've kept me in the lineup, avoiding the DL."
