Detroit Tigers release injury update on Manning
Prior to Friday's game against the San Francisco Giants, the Tigers released an injury update and it revealed that Manning's injury will not require surgery.
“RHP Matt Manning (right foot fracture) sustained a fracture to his right 5th metatarsal after he was struck by a comebacker during his last outing on 4/11. He has received multiple opinions from foot specialists who recommend non-operative treatment for his fracture.”
Bottom Line: Manning avoids surgery
It certainly hurts that Manning is on the injured list with a fractured foot, but it is certainly good news that he will avoid having surgery. Hopefully, he will be able to recover as quickly as possible so that he can reclaim his spot in the Tigers rotation.
