postheadericon SHOULDER WOES!

Cole Hamels – Diagnosed with shoulder inflammation but will not be placed on the DL.  Apparently the inflammation isn’t causing as much discomfort as one would expect.  Phillies are confident hell remain off the DL.

Hanley Ramirez – Wont return when eligible, are you surprised?  I hope not, this should have been expected.

Ubaldo Jimenez – 4.2 IP, 4 ER, 5 K’s.  Ubaldo is atrocious right now and cannot be started in leagues until he figures out how to pitch again.

Pedro Alvarez – Sent back to Triple-A to make room for Jose Tabata.  Well at least Alvarez’s draft position next year will be way below where it should!

Jonathan Sanchez – To the DL with an ankle injury.  After Tuesdays game Sanchez was seen on crutches and manager Bruce Bochey said he will be out a while.  Sanchez was borderline ownable when he was healthy, cut him loose.

Jacoby Ellsbury – 2 for 8 in a double header while hitting his 21st and 22nd homer.  Next year Ellsbury will be severely overhyped.  If you think Ellsbury hits 20+ homer next year, you’re nuts.

Desmond Jennings – 3 for 9 with a homer and a steal in Tuesdays double header.  Jennings is putting together an absolutely fantastic season.  I know I said expect a drop off, but I don’t see one coming anytime soon.

Ryan Dempster – 7 IP, 2 ER, 7 K’s but didn’t get the win due to Marmol crapping the bed.  Dempster has now strung together 5 straight quality starts.

Neil Walker – 3 for 5 with his 10th homer on the year.  Did you know that Walker is top 10 for second basemen and also top 10 for third basemen?
