  • 24 May
    St Kilda face a difficult decision on the immediate playing future of young AFL star Paddy McCartin after he suffered his third concussion this season.McCartin, 20, arrived back in Melbourne with the Saints on Saturday night after their road woes continued with a heavy loss to Gold Coast.The former No.1 draft pick faces an uncertain future after he suffered a concussion in a collision with teammate Tim Membrey in the first quarter at Metricon Stadium.He was also concussed in round three and round 11 and has now suffered five concussions in the past two seasons, with his latest setback leading to speculation he may be set for an extended break from the game.It will be up to the doctors ... theyll do everything necessary to make sure that hes either right to play or not, coach Alan Richardson said after the match.Its hard to speculate (on his future) because I dont really know.St Kilda are likely to take a conservative approach with their star of the future, who also suffers from type 1 diabetes.In other injury news, Carlton confirmed Irish rookie Ciaran Byrne had suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will require a complete reconstruction.Long-term injuries are always disappointing, particularly as Ciaran was having a really solid season so far, Blues football chief Andrew McKay said.He will undergo surgery in the coming weeks and will commence his rehabilitation process not long after that.Ciaran is a resilient young man and will have the clubs full support throughout this process.Players typically miss between 10 and 12 months after they undergo a traditional knee reconstruction.

A return to the mound would be a bonus for the Indians.Salazar had an MRI on Monday in Cleveland and will miss three to four weeks with a forearm injury, sidelining the right-hander for the rest of the regular season and casting doubt on his availability for the playoffs.Salazar was examined by Dr. Mark Schickendantz, the Indians head team physician. He was diagnosed with a mild strain to his flexor musculature.When its all said and done, getting the news that we did is probably pretty damn good, Francona said. I mean its musculature as opposed to something with a ligament.Cleveland began the day with a seven-game lead in the AL Central over second-place Detroit. If the Indians make it to the playoffs, a healthy Salazar likely would serve as their No. 3 starter behind Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco, but Francona said it was too early to speculate on what he might be able to do in the postseason.The one thing we want to do is get him healthy, make sure he knows hes healthy, because thats important, Francona said, and then if it fits somewhere, good. But the biggest thing iis to get him healthy.ddddddddddddSalazar will get a platelet-rich plasma injection on Tuesday and stop throwing for approximately 10 days. Salazar had Tommy John surgery in 2010 and missed a couple weeks in August with right elbow inflammation, but Mondays MRI showed his ulnar collateral ligament was intact.The 26-year-old Salazar is 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 starts. He pitched four innings Friday at Minnesota before he was pulled because of forearm tightness.I think he felt this on one pitch, Francona said.The injury ramps up the pressure on Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin and Mike Clevinger, three possibilities for the playoff rotation if Salazar is unable to go. Bauer goes for his third straight win Tuesday against the White Sox, and Tomlin and Clevinger start the final two games of the series.I dont they need to try to do more than they can, Francona said. Every time they start its a big night. Every time somebody does well it helps everybody, but its always the case.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap ' ' '
