Astros propsect Sapp out of hopsital

Max Sapp, who suffered multiple seizures Tuesday and has been battling viral meningitis returned home Thursday evening and appears to be doing fine.

“He’s doing good,” Sapp’s mom, Missy, said.

Sapp, who landed in the hospital Dec. 11 with viral meningitis, doesn’t seem worried because the seizures were likely side effects of his medication, Phenobarbital.

“You don’t just stop taking it,” Missy Sapp said. “You have to wean off. It’s just a little bump in the road, and he’ll chill out for three weeks, and we’ll go from there.”

Sapp, the club’s top pick in the 2006 draft, had been catching bullpen sessions and doing some light hitting exercises in minor league camp at Osceola County Stadium. He’s not likely to return to baseball action until April at the earliest.
