Polanco to DL with sports hernia

Because we haven't posted enough about injuries lately -- please note dripping sarcasm -- we have another to pass along. Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco is headed to the disabled list after he was unable to see the field yet again Tuesday night (Todd Zolecki via Twitter).

Polanco hadn't played since August, as he's suffering from a sports hernia. Many times, this injury forces athletes to undergo surgery, which would most likely end Polanco's season. He will not, however, have this surgery and instead reportedly intends to play through a bit of pain the rest of the season, after he returns from the DL, of course.

Polanco, 35, has dealt with injuries several times this season and they have limited him to just 89 games. He's hitting .275/.330/.342 and made the All-Star team last month.
