Anytime a guy with Burnett's elbow history has to visit any doctor, it's newsworthy. When Andrews is the doctor, it's nail biting time.

Just googled him. Sounds like a pretty hard core dude.

Dr. James Andrews is the Co-Founder of the Alabama Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center, the medical director for numerous sports teams, and a leading pioneer in sports medicine. He is widely recognized for his role in advancing the field of shoulder, knee and elbow surgery. He has mentored over 125 fellows throughout the course of his academic career, and is considered one of the foremost orthopaedic surgeons and sports doctors in the world. Over the course of his career, he has operated on a remarkable number of prominent athletes, including Troy Aikman, Roger Clemens, and Jack Nicklaus.

He is the top of his profession. The list of pro athletes is a hundred fold of what is in that article. It could be a precautionary method but if not Burnett is in great hands and I am in more trouble.

Doesn't this sound like (on MLB.com) that A.J. has already been examined?

"Burnett complained about elbow discomfort after his last start on Saturday, according to Marlins general manager Larry Beinfest. Burnett was promptly flown to Birmingham, Ala., to be examined by Dr. James Andrews.

"He's not being placed on the disabled list," Beinfest said. "He will be skipped in his next start, and we will see if the inflammation goes down."

Beinfest said he was relieved that the examination didn't show anything more serious. Burnett underwent Tommy John surgery in 2003."

May 24 A.J. Burnett (P) Fla will miss his next start Thursday after experiencing pain in his surgically repaired right elbow after Saturday's game, according to the Miami Herald. He doesn't expect to miss more than one start. "His timeline is TBA," Marlins general manager Larry Beinfest said. "He is not being placed on the DL, [but] we wanted to be cautious with A.J. When someone does have a history of injury, you want to make sure he has peace of mind."
What are you guys doing?

I think the only SP left on my roster who hasn't missed at least 1 start is Mark Prior.
