Grim LeRogue to be arraigned bedside on Thursday

1 Comment

Ian Begley of ESPN New York has an update on Grim LeRogue — the man who was arrested for running on the field during Game 3 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium.

LeRogue will have a bedside arraignment Thursday at New York’s Lincoln Hospital, where he has been held since the incident.  A judge will offer a ruling via video conference, and it sure sounds like the 33-year-old LeRogue is in some serious trouble.

He carried a picture of Alex Rodriguez with him that night, marked with an “X” on the third baseman’s face and a gun pointing to A-Rod’s head.  He also carried a picture of Cameron Diaz, who has been linked romantically to Rodriguez, that read “We Will Be Together Soon.”

Thankfully, New York’s finest tackled LeRogue before he got off the warning track.

He has undergone psychiatric evaluation while at Lincoln Hospital and seems likely to serve extra time in either a mental hospital or jail cell.

White Sox first baseman José Abreu underwent lower abdominal surgery on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was an outpatient procedure that is expected to keep him away from baseball activity for two weeks.

Abreu, 31, was held out of Tuesday’s lineup, his first day off in more than two months. This season, Abreu has hit a productive .272/.331/.491 with 22 home runs and 78 RBI in 526 plate appearances.

The White Sox will likely play Matt Davidson at first base and put Daniel Palka at DH while Abreu is out.
