It sounds like Sheets is done for the season. An MRI revealed a tear of the latissimus dorsi, a muscle in the upper back that moves the shoulder. Brewers team physician Dr. William Raasch said the injury typically requires four weeks to two months to heal. ''There's a lot of swelling,'' Raasch said. ''We can't tell you how quickly he'll heal. Best-case scenario is 15 days, if he's feeling great. Worst case, two months.'' Either Victor Santos, Ben Hendrickson or Wes Obermueller could replace him in the rotation.
I need to know if I should ditch him now. I'd hate for an opponent to pick him up for the last three weeks of the season. Anyone?
