What happened to Oswalt?

"Oswalt strained his right groin and left in the second inning. He looked toward catcher Brad Ausmus after his second pitch of the inning, his 23rd of the game, and immediately was replaced.

Oswalt originally hurt his groin May 15 while running the bases against Pittsburgh and was on the disabled list until May 31. He planned to return to Houston on Thursday for an MRI."

He jumped up way too far in this years rankings. He's one of my favorite pitchers, but I wasn't going to take him in the first 2-3 rounds.

Next year will be a fine year to draft him...in the 5th round or so. He's 4th round quality, but he was an injury waiting to happen.

There were lots of warnings out there.

Warnings?? What warnings? Warnings that he would be having groin problems??? The only thing people should have worried about were the innings and his arm.

The guy is a top 5 NL-only pitcher and will be next year, too. He could fall to the 2nd round in NL-only leagues, but no further.
