Sheesh. Who knows what to believe:
Nonetheless, a published report Wednesday that said Griffey’s season might be over perplexed Reds trainer Mark Mann.
“At this point in time, this is something that he can come back and play this year,” said Mann.
As evidence, Mann pointed to the work Griffey did Tuesday night. He said the center fielder ran at about 60-70 percent effort on the indoor track at Great American Ball Park and took batting practice in the cage.
“He was pain-free,” said Mann. “He felt nothing, felt good.”
In addition, Mann said the swelling in Griffey’s foot Wednesday was reduced from what had been evident the day before and is almost completely gone.
