Nettles Discusses His Latest Bad Break

For all intents and purposes, Southern Maryland starter Jarrett Grube ended Jeff Nettles first half with one errant fastball.

Depending on who you talk to, Nettles is expected to miss anywhere from the next four to eight weeks, with the more extreme timetable putting him out of action until the All-Star break.  After last night’s game was suspended due to wind, I went into Somerset’s clubhouse and caught up with the most prolific player in Patriots history.

“It was just a fastball up and in,” he told me.

“It’s part of the game, that stuff kind of happens.  I couldn’t get out of the way, got hit and it’s going to take me four to six weeks to get better.”

Nettles was hitting .362 with a home run and nine RBI in his first 13 games, but downplayed his strong start when talking about his frustrations in having to miss some time.

“Any time you can’t play, it’s tough,” Nettles said.

“But like I’ve been telling everybody else, I’m glad it happened in Game 13 and not 113.  I’m able to come back in the second half, really get in a groove and try to help these guys out and win when I come back.”
