 SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) -Injuries sustained by Cleveland Indians reliever Juan Lara in a weekend car accident make it too dangerous to move him to the United States for treatment, a team spokesman said Wednesday.
The 26-year-old left-hander, who remains hospitalized in critical condition, suffered a fractured spine, severe brain trauma, two broken ribs and a punctured lung in the crash Saturday night.
``For now he can't be moved because of his condition, but we're taking all the necessary measures so he recovers,'' said Winston Llenas, the team's representative in the Caribbean nation.
Llenas said doctors were focusing on treating a blood clot in Lara's head.
A spokeswoman for the Plaza de la Salud hospital in Santo Domingo, said Lara's condition is stable and has not changed.
Lara, a Dominican native who pitched in one game for Cleveland last season, was returning from a winter league game Saturday night in San Pedro de Macoris when the sports utility vehicle he was driving was hit by a motorcycle. The accident killed both the rider and a passenger on the motorcycle.
Lara was stopped at an intersection when he was struck on the driver's side and was pinned inside the vehicle.
