Dryer leaves game with shin injury

York Revolution slugger Matt Dryer left the first game of Saturday’s Route 30 doubleheader after fouling a ball off his shin in his first at-bat of the game.

Dryer, who hit a team-record nine homers in August, was replaced by Kenny Perez in the lineup and his status is uncertain. The Revs went on to claim an 8-1 victory over Lancaster.

Adam Gladstone, the Revolution’s director of baseball operations, said Dryer’s shin is sore but did not have further information on the extent of the injury.

Dryer, a Rochester, N.Y. native, hit his 18th homer of the year Friday night in York’s 12-3 loss to the Barnstormers. Overall, he’s hitting .246 with 18 homers, 58 RBIs and 111 strikeouts in 106 games.

Dryer, a fan favorite, returned to York for a second season this year after having surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder in the offseason. He is tied with Jason Aspito for York’s all-time lead in home runs (35).

  1. AP reports he has a hair line facture.

  2. Are you mediocre at best? Come to York where you can be an injury-plagued under-achiever who despite fooling people with your surface numbers, tends to strike out when it truly matters.

    I never understood how Dryer remains such a fan favorite other than the pure “novelty” factor. Is York really fooled by some long hair and “cool dude” attitude?

    This offseason, I think it’s safe to say the clothes are DRY and it’s time to fold ’em and move on….

  3. I couldn’t agree more! Maybe he should go drink another one, that’s about all he’s worth. Nothing like being a role model to the local kids that wear this jersey tee shirts.

  4. I’m right there with you, Boom. I’ll cheer for him, as I do for all the Rev’s, but he certainly is not my favorite. He is somewhat cocky, last to be on the field for autographs and first to leave. He’s actually walked away from my son as he was handing him a card to sign.
