Sheets injury

Postby jrock_at_rons » Thu Mar 09, 2006 5:46 pm

FYI - Ben Sheets was pulled from hsi scheduled 3 ining start this afternoon after complaining of muscle soreness in his repaired shoulder (the one that cost him the final 6 weeks of last season).

Hopefully its not anything too serious, but something we should all be aware of as we get closer to our drafts.

I'd be bummed if that shoulder injury limits him again. I worry that he wont be able to throw that curve consistently during the season, which would really hurt his effectiveness.

I took him as one of my three keepers - draft isn't until Sunday, is that still a good idea?

Who are your other options? I would have to see rest of team. What type of league...and what type of draft? If you have other for sure players, I would definately consider someone else.....especially someone consistenty good. If only keeping 3...likely to be many good pitchers left, pitchers are such a gamble from year to year.

I'm thinking maybe Jeter, just because of the lack of SSs. Standard 7x7 scoring. Roto draft.

The doctor is supposed to examine him tommorow. If you can, I would wait for the diagnosis from the doc before not keeping him (if you can). I have him as a keeper too, but ours aren't due till Monday.

Another article in the paper said they think it might be the scar tissue from the surgery popping (which would actually be a good thing).

Either way, I feel your pain... more so as a Brewer fan than a fantasy GM.

"Drew Olson is talking about his conversation this morning with Ben Sheets on his morning radio show on ESPN1510, and remarked that Sheeter "feels better" today, like he could go out there and play catch, maybe even take the mound - but can't ramp it up.
"

That sounds ok as well, but I'd hold off making any decisions on him until after he throws again if at all possible.

I don't know what muscle he tore but it was on the back of the shoulder so muscle he tore last year was likely a de-accelerator. You can only accerlerate you arm as fast as you can de-accelerate it. As a former minor leaguer I can say that those muscles are under the most stress. I had chronic problems in that area...it was not fun. My guess is that he is going to build scar tissue and he will have to break that down every time out before that muscle can grow regularly. I know what this is like. The dull ache and weakness are things to expect along with tightness and a slower recovery until he is 100%. It might take all spring but he can eventually return to form. I just would not expect a hot start to the season for him. The real danger with this kind of injury is if this muscle group is not doing its job it can put a lot of stress on the rotator or even the elbow. That is what all the caution is about.

If all the teams in your league only keep 3 players, I would never worry about keeping a pitcher, I would just go get one in the draft.

Off your team I would keep Bay, Jeter and D Young (if this is Delmon)
