Cora Headed for DL

SoSG Alex Cora's profile picture is of Cora being taken off the field on a stretcher, which is fitting after today's news that Cora is likely headed for the Red Sox DL:

CLEVELAND — Though the Red Sox weren’t prepared to make a move before game time, all signs pointed to utility infielder Alex Cora being placed on the disabled list, perhaps as soon as today.

Cora has been out of the lineup since last Wednesday after getting plunked on the right elbow. On Monday, manager Terry Francona said Cora had “no restrictions” in terms of what he could do, but apparently Cora’s progress has been minimal the last few days.

He hit in the cage yesterday afternoon, but the Sox don’t think he’s ready to return to action.

What's worse, the article is accompanied by a picture of Tim Wakefield. Sorry, AC. Rough day.
