Sheets update: returning late June at earliest

Sheets needs more time
Sore shoulder still bothers pitcher

Philadelphia - When Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said a couple of weeks ago that injured right-hander Ben Sheets would be out another four weeks or so, some people were surprised that it would be that long.

As it turns out, Melvin probably was being conservative.

It is becoming increasingly evident that Sheets, who is sidelined with shoulder tendinitis, will not be rejoining the Brewers' rotation for quite some time. He continues to play catch and do some long-tossing but no timetable has been set to begin throwing off a mound again.

"I'm not there yet," Sheets said Sunday. "My arm is better but it still doesn't feel that good."

Once Sheets is allowed to start throwing bullpen sessions, the next step would be simulated action and then a minor-league rehabilitation assignment. All told, that three-step process would probably last three to four weeks.

At that rate, Sheets would not be back until late June, at the earliest. Asked if it were possible that he wouldn't return until mid-season, Sheets said, "I hope not. It's hard to say."

"There's no timetable right now," he added. "I'll know when I'm ready (to resume throwing)."

What a waste of a Roster spot this year, I had to drop Liriano early in the season to make room for his first return.

for those of us in keepers, it's becoming increasingly difficult to difficult to justify keeping him for next year.

If he comes back this season and is lights out and injury free for the remainder, I'll keep him.

If not, someone like Liriano may take his place on my keeper roster.

I've become more and more tempted to try and buy low on him in my keeper league the lower and lower his perceived value goes but at this point even I am starting to question whether it would be worth the risk to make him a keeper in a league where we only keep 6.
