Injured Gagne 'weighing his options'
Brewers nonroster reliever Eric Gagne sat in front of a computer screen for nearly an hour on Thursday, listening to team doctor William Raasch explain the MRI image of Gagne’s right shoulder. It did not appear to be a pleasant chat.
“The quote from Roger [Caplinger, the Brewers' head athletic trainer] is, “He is weighing his options,’” manager Ken Macha said.
Presumably, that means Gagne is considering a surgical fix to the soreness in his shoulder, an injury that also landed him on the disabled list last season. But assistant general manager Gord Ash, the team’s point man on injuries, would not confirm that, and Gagne was not available to reporters during open clubhouse time Friday morning.
Ash was consulting with Gagne’s agent, Scott Boras, on Friday to decide a course of action.
