A few days old, but it doesn't look so good. The author Drew Olsen has been covering the Brewers for years so he normally has a pretty good read on things. There's been a few whispers coming out that Sheets really doesn't work out much at all and that could be contributing to some of his problems.

The last cople paragraphs are not encouraging...

Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, who signed Sheets to a franchise-record $38.5 million deal, is no doubt learning to accept that injuries as part of the business. The ineptitude of the replacements, however, can't look any better from California than it does from Cudahy. Attanasio didn't amass his fortune by waiting for things to happen. The Brewers have waited a month for Sheets to show signs of improvement and he has not. That could change tomorrow. It could change next week. If it doesn't change soon, the Brewers may reach a point where somebody has to decide "enough is enough," book a date for arthroscopic surgery and start focusing on 2007 rather than 2006.

When it comes to shoulder injuries, the standard protocol is to try to strengthen the area with a combination of rest, exercise and anti-inflammatory medication. Surgery is always a last resort, but it is one the Brewers and their fans may have to prepare for sooner rather than later.

Yikes! Ok...strike Sheets off the list of pitchers to target in my keeper league unless the asking price (a first round pick + another pick) comes WAY down.
