Raynor May Not Steal Again In 2007

John Raynor’s MVP caliber season could be ending a little bit early. The Greensboro outfielder left last night’s game with an injury to his right ring finger after diving back into first base on a pickoff attempt in the first inning.

Manager Edwin Rodriguez said in a press release that under best case scenario he could miss a couple of days, but he may be out for the season.

Raynor is hitting .333/.429/.519 in 445 at-bats and has 54 stolen bases. He is first in the South Atlantic League in steals and sixth in the minors. He also leads the league in runs scored with 110. His average hasn’t dipped below .300 since June 23.
