As per Will Carroll’s email yesterday, there is a detailed report on Barry Bonds’ condition in today’s Under the Knife, which is written by Tom Gorman. It is a Premium Content article.
Basically, Bonds’ knee is in better shape than Joe Mauer’s, as Mauer has a bone on bone situation, while Bonds does not. Put simply, Gorman underscores what I speculated about yesterday, that Bonds will probably be available by the end of April, although Gorman agrees that anything more than that would seriously hurt the team’s chances.
Today’s Chronicle has about fifty articles on the subject, here’s one in which Trainer Stan Conte adresses everyone’s worst fears.
I talked to Dr. Art Ting (he did the surgery) this morning. I talked to Barry. His knee looks exactly as we expected it to five to six days after surgery. I expect he’ll progress as most knee patients go, and that’s it.
