The MRI scan confirmed trainers' original diagnosis: Sheets has a sprained right middle finger. More specifically, there appears to be a "fraying" of the tissue that holds a tendon in place on the palm-side of the digit, and a dynamic ultrasound on Tuesday should determine the extent of that tearing.

"If it's partially torn, this is a simple couple of weeks, he'll be back," said assistant general manager Gord Ash, the team's point man on injuries. "If it's more fully torn, there will be more of a prolonged rest period, up to possibly six weeks."

The tendon appears intact, Ash said, and whatever the results of Tuesday's test, it appears Sheets will not need surgery. Doctors will observe Sheets' finger movements on an ultrasound machine to get a better look at the damage.


Well, I traded for him with a buy-low when he got hurt, hoping for a short term thing. Hopefully it is just a couple weeks rest -- but I guess I could live with six weeks if I have to -- at least he'll be back for H2H playoffs...

I just hope this doesn't turn into one of those "not healing as planned, out for the season" things. But, it is encouraging to hear them ruling out surgery.


This doesn't sound good at all!! :-t :-o

If he needs the 6 weeks, then he'd have to get his arm back in game shape. He'd probably miss the rest of the regular season. Or most of it!!

BTW, I had a full tear in the same tendon of my ring finger last year. It took 2 months of wearing a brace, and another 2-3 months of physical therapy to get motion back (after opting for non-surgery)...(and full motion never did return to the finger :(

All kidding aside, lets really hope it's only a partial tear. It's when the tendon takes a part of the bone with it that the injury gets really bad and affects your ability to fully bend the finger tip in the future.

(Again, apologizing for the previous tasteless joke I posted...not really my style... :,-( )

So what does this do for the Brewers plans to limit Gallardo's innings? Is that plan out the window or will they try to skip him a lot? Or will they shut him down if they get Sheets back in September? I think this is going to screw up a lot of fantasy postseasons.

Good news for those interested: http://www.jsonline.com/watch/?watch=1&date=7/17/2007&id=26532

Looking like a 2 week precautionary stint, not the 6 weeks that were potentially feared. It's only a small tear, not a complete one.

The headline of the article you quoted says 4-6 weeks. Despite not being a complete tear, that still sucks pretty hard :~(

From Rotworld:
Jul. 17 - 8:20 pm et
Ben Sheets will miss 4-6 weeks after an ultrasound Monday revealed a partial tear of the tissue surrounding the tendon in his right middle finger.
Sheets will rest for 10 to 14 days and then begin to throw with a splint. It'd be no big surprise if this injury costs him the rest of the season or at least limits him when he does return. Since he could overtake Claudio Vargas or another starter while Sheets is out, Yovani Gallardo will probably have a rotation spot for the rest of the year.
With Sheets history would anyone really be surprised if the next time he pitched was either late september to tune up for the playoffs or next year if they fall out of the race? For those that own him, at least you got half a season out of him, unlike Harden owners.
