Will Sheets go on the DL?

Postby Doughhead » Mon Mar 20, 2006 11:33 pm

Reports are saying that he won't be ready for opening day. Does that mean he'll be placed on the DL?

I have read No DL for Sheets as per MLB.com. He should make his first start April 17th vs Houston.

I fhe is going to miss A2ril 2-16, why would the Brewers play short for 2 weeks by not DL'ing him? That makes very little sense to me.

Why does every good young pitcher have issues?

Because being good and being hyped as good are not the same thing necessarily. And pitchers are a messed up, inconsitent lot as whole to start with.

Drafting him in the 3rd seems to be catching up with me.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Local reports are he's feeling fine but they don't think he'll be ready for opening day, they will announce whether he goes on the DL or not tomorrow.

I wouldn't be too worried about him, assuming his arm comes back strong he'll still be a top 10 pitcher with the chance to be a top 5 and if it doesn't come back strong... well thats why you don't draft pitching at value.

I hope if he's going to be out they toss him on the DL, so I can snatch somebody up to spot for him in my $ keeper. No bench makes it tough. :-o but fun :-]

From the Brewers site:


Assuming things progress positively as they have over the last week, it does not look like Sheets will have to start the year on the DL. He is almost certainly a no-go for April 3 against the Pirates, but because of perfectly-placed off-days on April 6 and 11, manager Ned Yost could go with a four-man rotation of Doug Davis, Chris Capuano, Tomo Ohka and Dave Bush for the first two weeks before needing a fifth starter on April 17 at Houston. That could be a reasonable target date for Sheets, assuming he has no more setbacks. Look for Yost to make his plans public in the next few days.

Sheets was bouncing around the clubhouse on Sunday, a good sign that he was thrilled with his bullpen session at rainy Maryvale Baseball Park, and notably snapped off 10-15 curveballs during eight-minutes on the mound. Overcoming the mental hurdle of that pitch -- arguably Sheets' best and the one on which he suffered his original injury last August -- is probably more vital to Sheets' comeback as his physical progress.
