is Sheets worth filling a spot on my roster, I just picked him up from the Free Agents, what is the consensus on how much he will pitch this year compared to the time spent on the DL. I mean is this guy's history DL filled?

I can't believe he was a FA in your league. Definitely pick him up if he's free. There hasn't been any new stuff on him that I can find, but, as an owner, I keep my eyes and ears open.

If you picked up Ben Sheets off your WW...you really gotta start looking for a new league. :-b

Right now there is no timetable for his return. The Brewers are saying he may start throwing in a week...maybe two.

They say tendinitis in his shoulder. No timetable has been set for his return. Report from the local rag:

Thanks for the link. It's not very helpful, but I know not to be optimistic.

Off topic: If that's a picture of you in the avatar, That's friggen awesome. ;-D I went to a halloween party once as Coors-lite-atron, but PBR man would've kicked my ass.

More on Sheets from the local rag...

Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said today that pitcher Ben Sheets may not be back pitching for the club for another four weeks.

A Brewers spokesman said Sheets could return sooner, adding that Melvin was providing a ballpark estimate of his possible return.
