Last week when Bryan Bickell showed up to the championship parade/rally the first thing everyone noticed was the huge knee brace he had on. I guess we should have been more focuses on his left hand.
Bickell was at Wrigley Field on Friday, with teammate Brandon Bollig, with a soft cast on his left hand. He admitted during his time in the pressbox with Cubs play by play man Len Kasper that he had a ligament replaced in his thumb. Expected recovery time is three weeks, so there is no worry about him not being ready for training camp in September.
