Just heard on NESN that the Twins say he will be "shut down indefinitely." Sounds like they're not gonna hurry him back, which is the right thing for the kid's future IMO.
Not the greatest thing for my team, but what are ya gonna do?

Honestly it's probably the best thing for your team as well. The last thing any team needs is him going out there hurt and tossing up a couple of homers before being pulled from the game and trashing your era/whip for the week in the process.

My wife is an occupational therapist, and she told me to stay away from Ben Sheets this year. She also said Mark Prior is a hypochondriac. I didn't even tell her the player names, I just summarized their injury history and asked her opinion. In fact, she barely knows any players (Torii Hunter, Joe Mauer & Johan Santana are the only exceptions).

I'd say she was 2-for-2 on those calls. People in health care may or may not know baseball, but they know the human body and they know about injuries, recovery, etc.

This is from fanball newsbreakers:

Twins starter Francisco Liriano, on the disabled list with a sore shoulder and elbow strain, will have a throwing session on Tuesday consisting of light tosses from 60 feet with a chance he'll back out to 40 feet. Minnesota pitching coach Rick Anderson told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the session will only last a few minutes as they check to see if there is any pain in Liriano's elbow.
Our View

Liriano is still out indefinitely, but with the Twins in the thick of a wild card race, the team is hoping the young phenom can recover quickly and be back by the end of the month.

Here are some updates from Yahoo!

Aug 10 An MRI of Liriano's sore elbow and forearm showed only a mild chronic strain of his ulnar collateral ligament and he won't need surgery, the Associated Press reports. He's still out indefinitely. However, no new injury and no structural damage was found to his throwing arm.

Recommendation: Another exam revealed weakness and stiffness in his shoulder that is causing soreness in his forearm near his elbow. The Twins feel he can rehab the injury. While he doesn't need surgery, there still doesn't appear to be any more clarity over when he may return this season. Still, this sounds about the best-case scenario and he may be able to return and be a factor for the Twins this season.

I think for the sake of Liriano's future, he should be shut down for the rest of the season.

I don't see the point of him going out there again. Get Garza some starts so next year, you'll have a loaded rotation ;-D

They just announced during the game that Liriano indeed did not play catch today, and the plan is to have him play catch later in the week.
