Miner out of rotation?

Postby sox 06 » Sun Aug 27, 2006 2:24 pm

From CBS Sportsline:

News: Sidelined since June surgery to remove bone chips from his left elbow, Mike Maroth gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings Friday night for Triple-A Toledo, his fourth rehab start. "It went well," he said. "I was pleased with my stuff and location." If he doesn't develop any soreness, and Maroth felt fine while playing catch before Saturday's game, he'll be activated Wednesday and start in New York against the Yankees. Zach Miner, who pitched in relief Saturday, will be Maroth's standby starting option.

Analysis: Miner was originally believed to be a part of a six-man rotation once Maroth returns, but will be needed in an emergency role at this point. Consider him nothing more than a middle reliever for the deepest of AL-only leagues at this point.

Sounds like Maroth may be in the pen for the rest of the year. Found this in Tigers insider Danny Knoblers blog.

CLEVELAND -- Mike Maroth felt some more tenderness in his left elbow when throwing in the bullpen this morning. He's not going to start Wednesday, and may not start at all this season. He'll be activated Friday, but will be in the bullpen. Wil Ledezma will start in his place Wednesday.
