Toronto Blue Jays’ Brett Lawrie on Disabled List Due to Ankle Sprain
Brett Lawrie, third baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays, suffered an ankle sprain on Tuesday when Lawrie attempted to slide into second base.
Lawrie stayed in for the rest of the game, but was obviously in pain. The Blue Jays ended up winning the game nine to three over Atlanta.
It is not recommended that you continue to play after sustaining a sprain or any other sports injury. Continuing to play through pain can be dangerous and can lead to further injuries or a more severe injury.
The longer you play and the more damage you do, the longer you will be out of play in the long run because it will take longer for you to rehabilitate and heal.
Lawrie has been placed on the 15 day disabled list to give his ankle time to recuperate.
If you suffer an ankle sprain while playing baseball or any other sport, stop playing and seek medical attention. Until you can reach a doctor, use the R.I.C.E. method. The R.I.C.E. method consists of rest, ice, compression and elevation.
