After the Doctor visit, there is fluid in his shoulder (but had nothing to do with the cortizone shot). Not only did the collision affect his shoulder, but his collar bone is also hurting him. He WAS in the line-up tonight, Aug 3, but was taken out when he said he was experiencing pain.

Sheff said that he, "wasn't able to even get around on an 88 mph fastball the other day."

He is officially day-to-day.

Gary Sheffield says he isn't as seriously injured as he first feared when he experienced numbness in his right arm. A day after the Detroit Tigers designated hitter had X-rays and an MRI exam, he said the injury stemmed from when he fell on his right elbow in a collision with second baseman Placido Polanco on July 21. Sheffield's collar bone, which he said was dislocated early in his career, was pushed out of place and caused numbness and soreness in his right shoulder. "I have to do rehab, just like pitchers," Sheffield said. He won't go on the disabled list, began taking medicine Thursday and started therapy and rehab on Friday.

I have a bad feeling about this. Call me a pessimist but I'm not expecting much from him in the final 2 months.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Good news.

1. During the game last night (8/7 vs. TB) Gary had a bat in his hand during the Tiger's rally in the 8th inning.

2. Per 1130AM news this morning, I heard Gary was going to be in the lineup tonight.
And it's Looooong Gooone!!!
