Already on DL, Freese breaks big toe

ST. LOUIS -- David Freese is not having a good month. Already on the disabled list with a bone bruise in his right ankle, Freese fractured the big toe of his left foot Sunday.

According to manager Tony La Russa, Freese was working out in the gym when he dropped a plate on his toe.

The toe injury might not affect the timetable for Freese's return, which was not expected until late July, at the earliest, with the ankle injury.

"They took an X-Ray and it is a little fracture," La Russa said. "They are saying it might not be any longer then his ankle. So I really don't know, but he has that to deal with as well."
