John Smoltz aggravated his pinkie finger and suffered a mild shoulder strain on a warmup pitch before leaving Tuesday's game in the fourth inning.

Smoltz apparently hurt the pinkie on a swing. The shoulder is the bigger concern, though the Braves said he left as a precaution. He was hurt warming up in the fourth, perhaps when he slipped on the mound, and faced just one batter in the inning before leaving. If Smoltz can't make his next start, the Braves will have to bring back Lance Cormier early and find another starter for next Tuesday's doubleheader.

I wonder what "mild" means? Missed start? No DL??
Hopefully at best. I dont like the sounds of "shoulder strain" for a SP at all. :-t

The latest on Smoltz, from ESPN.com

News: Smoltz, who left Tuesday's start after three innings, hurt his shoulder while warming up for the inning and re-injured his right pinkie finger in his previous at-bat, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The move was said to be mostly precautionary.

Spin: Smoltz dislocated his right pinkie on May 14 so this is a concern. No word yet if he'll miss his next start, but this report doesn't make it sound too serious.
"Why don't you just make 10 louder and make 10 be the top number, and make that a little louder"

"These go to 11".
