Sorry this is hurting your roster, but the title of the thread gave me the giggles.

Since biceps injuries often turn out to be shoulder problems in reality, this is a major concern. Colon figured to have setbacks in his recovery from a torn rotator cuff, but he was looking so good in his rehab assignment and in his first couple of starts back in the majors. If he goes back on the DL, the Angels figure to recall Joe Saunders to replace him in the rotation.

Ummmm...I heard he left with a TRICEP injury.

LAA: Colon leaves with triceps strain
Bartolo Colon (P)
5/6: Bartolo Colon left his start on Sunday in the eighth inning with a mild triceps strain in his right arm, according to the Sports Network. He's listed as day-to-day. Colon pitched well prior to his departure, allowing two runs on five hits in seven innings.

Colon, speaking through an interpreter, said of the pain in his triceps, "I had it early in the game, but it felt like on the last pitch I made it tightened up a lot."

Asked whether the pain might be related to the rotator cuff (shoulder) injury that kept him out of action until mid-April, Colon said, "I'm not worried. ... It's halfway between the elbow and the shoulder."

Scioscia said, "We're day-to-day with Bart and it's good to have the extra day [Monday]. We'll evaluate him on a daily basis." The manager later added he didn't believe Colon would undergo an MRI on Monday.

This morning the LA Times -- and the Angels -- seem a little more optimistic: no MRI.

LA Times: About the only good news for the Angels was that Colon's injury — diagnosed as a mild strain of the right triceps — did not appear to be serious or related to the rotator-cuff tear that knocked him out for most of 2006 and the shoulder tear that ended his 2005 season.

"I felt it on and off throughout the game, but on that last pitch I threw, it tightened up a lot," Colon said through an interpreter. "But I'm not worried, because I've had this in the past and have been able to pitch with it. God willing, I will be able to make my next start."

Colon said the pain was about halfway between his shoulder and elbow and could have been caused by altering his mechanics to compensate for a tender left ankle, which he injured in his first game this season.

The Angels are off today, so Colon will have an extra day of rest before his next start, and as of Sunday afternoon, Scioscia said there were no plans for Colon to undergo an MRI test today.

"Right now, it's tough to evaluate," Scioscia said. "He has as much chance of making his next start as of not making it. We'll take it day by day and see how he feels."
