postheadericon MORROW ME SOME MORE!

Brandon Morrow – 6 IP, 1 ER, 12 K’s in one of his best starts of the year.  The 12 K’s were a season high for Morrow and he will get the Royals in another must start matchup.

Mike Stanton – Has now  homered in 4 straight games.  Oh how I love me some Mike Stanton!

Alex Rodriguez – Will rejoin the Yankees on Thursday but won’t be activated.  Expect him back this weekend.

Brian Wilson – Was not available on Wednesday due to an inflamed elbow.  He has no structural damage and will just need some time off.

Stephen Strasburg – Could rejoin the Nationals on September 2nd.  Due note that this is only a goal and seems silly and unrealistic.  Don’t expect to see the Nationals rush their prized pitcher.

Michael Cuddyer – Could be placed on the 15 day DL as early as Thursday.  Cuddyers neck is not responding to treatment and might require more time than originally hoped.

Jose Reyes – Will test his hamstring on Friday and should have a better timetable on his return after that.

David Ortiz – Was fitted for a walking boot for the heel issues he is having.  Ortiz isn’t suppose to miss more than a week.

Adrian Gonzalez – Has a sore neck that his manager thinks is causing his recent power outage.  Why cant his manager just admit the pace he was on was not sustainable?

Jhonny Peralta – 2 for 3 with his 17th homer on the year.  What a beautiful, unexpected surprise from the shortstop position!
