Preliminary diagnosis : No serious damage to Santana's knee

By Sheldon Published: August 2, 2010

BOSTON: First indications are that Carlos Santana's left knee is not seriously damaged from a collision at the plate in the Indians' 6-5 win over the Red Sox tonight at Fenway Park.

""Carlos tested well with the trainers, meaning they don't feel there is serious damage to his ACL,'' manager Manny Acta said after the game. ""He's leaving for Cleveland tomorrow for an MRI, then we'll know more.''

In a seventh-inning play at the plate, Ryan Kalish of the Red Sox slid into Santana, culminating with the catcher lying on the ground in pain while medical staffers rushed to his aid.

Kalish was trying to score from second on a single to right by Daniel Nava, but Shin-Soo Choo threw out the runner, whose path to the plate was blocked by Santana. However, the catcher seemed to twist his leg in an odd position and eventually his knee was wrapped in an inflatable cast and he was carried off the field on an electric cart.
