Oh hell, and I traded for the guy. I hope "near future" translates as "the week" instead of "the next couple months," heh.

According to Sportsline:

Damon says he can 'barely walk'

Johnny Damon, CF NYY

News: According to MLB.com, despite receiving a day off and treatment on his calf did little to ease the concerns of Yankees CF Johnny Damon, who said he could "barely walk" prior to Wednesday's rainout against the Devil Rays. Damon left Monday's opener in the fifth inning what was originally diagnosed as cramps. Yankees GM Brian Cashman amended that diagnosis Wednesday to reflect a calf strain of an unknown degree. "It's more than cramps," Damon said. "It felt like cramps (Monday), but I've got to go in and figure it out, (and) make sure it's something that could heal as I continue playing. I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but I've really got to get it taken care of right now."

Analysis: Damon spent an hour on the training table Wednesday before the game was officially rained out. The Yankees don't intend to send Damon for tests, but that might change Thursday if he does not improve. "The fact that he's still sore today would eliminate the word 'cramp,'" Cashman said. "He's probably got a little strain we're dealing with now." Fantasy owners should hope for a miracle recovery by Thursday. Keep Damon out of active Fantasy lineups for the time being. He is a high-end Fantasy outfielder when healthy. He is being considered day to day

man what a bummer. We dont carry a deep bench on our league, so it really sucks that Damon is out.

Whats worse is there's hardly any news on his status. Any one know how serious this is, and how many games he's looking to miss?
