McLouth still “off and on”; Resop begins to throw

Braves manager Bobby Cox said Wednesday that outfielder Nate McLouth is still suffering from concussion symptoms and a timetable for his return is unknown.

Cox said McLouth was not feeling well after going through a workout outside, in the heat, Tuesday. McLouth was to work out indoors on Wednesday.

“It’s off and on,” Cox said.

McLouth was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 12 after an outfield collision with Jason Heyward.

In other injury news, reliever Chris Resop reported no issues after a long-toss session on Tuesday. It’s the first time Resop has thrown a baseball since being placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 16, the day after straining his left oblique. Resop was to have another long-toss session on Wednesday and hoped to throw a bullpen session by the weekend.

“You can’t rush it,” Resop said. “If you try to come back too fast, you could be out even longer.”

Please take your time Resop. No need to rush. No need at all.

Oh no! McLouth’s not getting better. I hope his concussion symptoms go away but…maybe they could just move to his hands so he can pick up a bat.

I agree with those who have stressed that these guys take their time. After all, the rosters don’t expand until September 1, so we have a couple of months for you guys to heal properly. In the meantime, take some time to spend with family and friends, maybe hit the minor league parks and sign some autographs. Also, a lot of great movies come out in the summer.

I love Jason Heyward, but I think he and the Braves should rethink him skipping the All Star Game, fans have such short memories and I would hate to have him dissed in the future if he opts out after the fans vote him in. All he needs to do is show up and honor the fans that voted for him, he doesn’t have to play, showing up would silence all the naysayers. Rehab is important for him, but the Braves start the second half against the Brewers, he can rehab then and prepare to return in the San Diego series. Don’t get ostracized like Gary Templeton’s infamous incident. Jason go to the All Star Game, you earned it and deserve it.

Do the Braves have to bring Resop up once he’s healthy or lose him?

Either the Braves are insulting our intelligence, or Nate McLouth needs to be under the care of a specialist.
