Alex Cora hurt himself, of course

Alex Cora.jpgUh-oh. Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog informs us that Alex Cora injured his back while playing with Criollos de Caguas in the Puerto Rican Winter League last week.



Cora, 34, signed a one-year, $2
million contract with the Mets earlier this month. He batted
.251/.320/.310 with one home run, 18 RBI and 31 runs scored in 217
at-bats in ’09 before undergoing season-ending surgery on both thumbs
in August.




For those keeping score, Cora has a bad back while new catcher Henry Blanco already has a bum shoulder. It will be awful tough to top last year’s calvalcade of injuries, but the Mets are off to a pretty impressive start.
