Originally written August 23, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
San Francisco Giants outfielder Andres Torres has been playing through considerable pain for some time as a result of his Achilles injury. He was hoping he could continue to do so, but he made the discomfort known to his coaching and training staff, and the Giants ultimately decided to place the 35-year-old on the disabled list. Torres told reporters -- including Chris Haft of MLB.com -- that the condition of his foot has been "up and down" throughout the season. Following Wednesday's matchup against the Boston Red Sox, Torres said the pain became too much to continue to play through, prompting the roster move. Now, Torres is slated to see a foot specialist as he embarks on his recovery program. While surgery is not a certainty, manager Bruce Bochy said that it remains a possibility depending on the diagnosis. The skipper said that he appreciates the ailments that players such as Torres suit up through, noting the mind set of players and coaches. "These players have their aches and pains and don't always talk about them," Bochy said. "If they can play, they'll go out there and play. This isn't a case where we thought he was hiding anything. You always appreciate a player who wants to be out there and play. I can talk to almost every one of them out there, and there's probably something going on, especially here in August. Including my [coaching] staff. It goes with the territory." Torres told reporters that he initially suffered the Achilles injury early during the 2011 season. It caused him to hit the DL, as the area was afflicted by a bone spur that Torres is still hampered by. He added that the injury is impacting his power at the plate, something that you can see has played out in his totals over the past three seasons. It's unclear what the future holds for Torres, but it wouldn't be surprising to later find out that his 2013 campaign is over. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
