Atlanta fans, I need some info on Smoltz.

Atlanta fans, I need some info on Smoltz.

Postby pangbones » Tue Jul 03, 2007 12:14 am

I watched the game tonight, and Smoltz looked terrific. I noticed that he kept grabbing his arm, and it looked liked he was grimacing when he did it. Kinda like he was trying to stretch it out some. I would like to know if that is normal or not? I just got Smoltz in a trade, and I'm worried about his shoulder. So do he always do that, or is his shoulder in fact hurting him? :-o

Good eye.
John Smoltz's lingering shoulder soreness could force the Braves pitcher to skip another start or go to the place he clearly wants to avoid — the disabled list.

===

The veteran's right shoulder didn't feel any better Tuesday, but he wouldn't know until he threw Wednesday what the plan would be for the immediate future. Asked if there was any way he would make his next scheduled start Saturday in San Diego, he said, "It's possible, but probably not likely."

HIS JUST IN: SMOLTZ WILL MISS A START, almost certainly. And there’s a chance he’ll go on DL, but he prefers the first option, which would probably put him starting the fifth game after the break as his next start.

He’ll know more after he throws tomorrow. That’s when they’ll probably decide the plan. He doesn’t feel too good today, though. No MRI planned. He’s certain it’s nothing major.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

Probably just some minor shoulder tendinitis. It was bound to happen sooner or later given his age and the amount of innings he's pitched.

5th start after the break makes him a 2 start pitcher in week 16. Now let's just hope his shoulder holds up.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

my team is snake bit.

Myers, Dempster, Burnett, Randy Johnson, now Smoltz.

I also have Kinsler.

My DL is full and my bench is filling up.

"Jul 6 David O'Brien, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Braves SP John Smoltz (shoulder) will likely avoid a trip to the disabled list, and he is scheduled to start the fifth game post All-Star break for the Braves. The Braves, and Smoltz, believe that the problem is just lingering inflammation in his right shoulder which should be alleviated with 10 days of rest and medication. Smoltz is expected to re-examined next Friday."

I'd be happy if they just put him on the DL, just to be safe. Save him for the stretch run. That way he's fresh, healthy, and I can pick someone else up!! ;-)
