Indians catcher has ankle injury



Published: Sat, February 22, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.



WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) -- Catcher Josh Bard has joined the Cleveland Indians' injured list at spring training.

Bard, who will be the Indians' starting catcher on opening day, sprained his left foot Tuesday during workouts when he stepped on a ball during a pop-up drill.

Team spokesman Bart Swain said Bard could be sidelined for a few days.

Bard only played in 24 games last season for the Indians, but he inherited the starting catcher's job when Cleveland traded Einar Diaz to the Texas Rangers in December.

Bard, 24, is the third Cleveland player to be injured already this spring, and the Indians haven't even held their first full-squad workout yet. That is scheduled for Friday.

Pitchers Cliff Lee and Mark Wohlers are sidelined with injuries.

Lee can't throw for at least three weeks because of a strained abdominal muscle, a setback that will make it unlikely that the left-hander will make the club's opening-day roster.

Wohlers has a sore right elbow and is being rested for a week.
