Third baseman Ryan Mount of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes won’t be back in the lineup any time soon.
Mount, a graduate of Ayala High School, has been out since May 28 with a frayed tendon in his foot, the same one he had surgically repaired in 2011.
Mount saw his doctor on Tuesday. The injury is getting better but he’s probably another three weeks away from resuming baseball activity. He is trying to get back by the end of the season but that will probably be tough.
Mount, who turns 27 next month, was having a career year, hitting .342 in 42 games when he was sidelined.
He says he hopes to play winter ball to make up for the lost months.
