I dunno about that...I had him as well and was quite happy with what he did until the August injury. What was wrong with a 3.33 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 8.10 K/9, 2.37 BAA??? He didn't have much run support and still won 10 of his 22 starts. Might have won 15 or 16 if he had started more than 30 games. But I guess that's the problem now: he doesn't appear able to make that many starts anymore. I'd like to know if there has been a technical review of his mechanics to find out if that is what has given him problems. Watching him pitch, I'm guessing it's not an issue, but I'd hate to see him turn into another Kerry Wood.

According to Rotoworld, he felt great after his last throwing session yesterday and will probably start minor-league rehab starts next week so it sounds like he'll be back soon after the ASB.

Sheets has been on the disabled list with shoulder tendonitis since May 3.

From the yahoo recap of today's game


Notes

Brewers ace Ben Sheets, who has missed most of the season with tendinitis in his right shoulder, threw a three-inning, 45-pitch simulated game Tuesday. Brewers manager Ned Yost said Sheets threw great, but team officials would wait to see how he feels Wednesday before deciding whether to send him to the minor leagues for a rehabilitation stint. ... Milwaukee catcher Damian Miller was scratched from the lineup because of dizziness and replaced by Chad Moeller. ... Tuesday's attendance was 39,280.

I hope he can come back to his 2004 form. I love the K's he offers.

He's not even that important to my staff anymore, so some K's and W's is all I ask for.

I'll be happy if he plays well enough that I can get a decent trade for him
