Gagne's back...

From KFFL
May 30 Ken Gurnick, of LosAngeles.Dodgers.MLB.com, reports Los Angeles Dodgers RP Eric Gagne (elbow) picked up his second save in as many appearances Monday, May 29, for Triple-A Las Vegas. The appearance ended Gagne's rehab assignment with the team and he is expected to join the big-league club Thursday, June 1.


And Rotowire:
May 30 Gagne (elbow) tossed a scoreless ninth to earn the save for Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday in his final rehabilitation appearance.
Recommendation: Gagne is expected to rejoin the team on Thursday, although he may not figure into the mix for saves right away.

May 30 - Eric Gagne pitched a scoreless inning and recorded a save in his final rehab outing on Monday and said he felt good, his fastball was consistently around 90 MPH, peaking at 93. That is several miles an hour slower than he used to throw, as he is well known for his heat which reaches the upper 90s.

Is the fact that he's throwing low 90s any reason to worry?

That seems a bit contradictory to what this article was saying from MLB.com on May 27th.

"We've got to see him feeling good today and feeling good after another game on Monday," Little said. "His velocity was good -- 94, 95 mph."

That's faster than Gagne threw in Spring Training, when he pitched in pain for most of the preseason.

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers activated Canadian closer Eric Gagne Tuesday but announced he began serving a two-game suspension and will not join the team until Thursday in Los Angeles.

Montreal's Gagne completed his second minor league rehabilitation stint with triple-A Las Vegas Monday, recording a save in an 8-6 victory.

"My arm felt great," Gagne told the San Jose Mercury News. "I feel confident. I'll be ready for Thursday. You get mentally ready and bounce back in the big leagues."

Gagne was serving a suspension imposed by Major League Baseball on April 29, 2005, for violating the terms of a previous penalty.

I don't think so. Gagne still has that changeup that keeps batters guessing. ;-D
