Sam Fuld needs wrist surgery, could miss entire season

3 Comments

Sam Fuld was slated for a minor role after fading in the second half last season, but now the Rays will have to find a new backup outfielder.

Fuld is scheduled for wrist surgery tomorrow and is expected to miss 4-5 months, putting his entire season in jeopardy. He originally suffered the injury in September.

Fuld became a cult hero in Tampa Bay by hitting .350 with speed and great defense through his first 23 games, but then batted just .202 with a .580 OPS in his final 84 games.
