postheadericon MR. 3,000 ON HOLD?

Derek Jeter – Left Mondays game with a grade 1 calf strain.  No word yet if hes going to be placed on the DL, stay tuned.

Justin Morneau – Had an MRI on his wrist, which came back negative.  The dreadful season for Morneau is just getting worse.  He is considered day-to-day.

Vicente Padilla – Set to undergo neck surgery on Thursday.  Apparently the anti-inflammatory injection he received is not working.  If for some god awful reason you’re actually storing Padilla, drop him now.  I expect him to miss the remainder of the season.

Brett Anderson – James Andrews has advised Brett Anderson to rehab for six weeks and will not need Tommy John surgery.  To me this just sounds like he’s delaying the inevitable.

Jason Heyward – 1 for 3 with a double and a walk in his first rehab game.  When Heyward comes back, he is a must play in all formats.

Ryan Dempster – 7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 7 K with a no decision.  Dempster was absolutely magnificent Monday night holding a tough Brewer offense scoreless.  Dempster has been fabulous since May 3 allowing more the 2 runs only twice.

Wandy Rodriguez – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 5 K while picking up his 4th win.  Excellent start straight off the DL, im sure many of you benched him for this start.

Johan Santana – Had a set back and is know likely out until August.  Is anyone surprised by this?  I saw this coming, drop him in all formats.
