Wickman Injury

The way Dotel and soriano have been pitching, I'd guess the Braves are praying that Wicky's OK. Regardless - who do you think would get the first crack? I'm inclined to think this would become a comittee....

Well this season Dotel was the closer for Kc as you know but i think Soriano will get the first crack at it if wick-daddy is out.

THIS JUST IN: Wickman’s forearm is fine, just some inflammation. Had an MRI (we weren’t told that) yesterday at a NY hospital, then had CT scan today at a Philly hospital. Both came back negative, which is of course, positive (that medical terminology always gets me).

Anyway, he’s able to pitch right away. BUT they’re activating ACOSTA and sending down PRADO, to give them an extra pitcher for at least a few days.

By the way, asked Bobby who’d close if Wickman couldn’t and he said they had three who could _ Soriano, Dotel and … Moylan. Yes, he said it.

THIS JUST IN…CHANGE IN PLANS… Braves put Dotel on DL with strained right shoulder, Prado staying up.

This is first that the team or Dotel has said of a shoulder strain, no mention whatsoever to anyone yesterday, when Dotel didn’t pitch. Bobby had said when I asked him about Soriano not pitching yesterday that he and Dotel were getting a day to rest, then he went into the Wickman matter and told us about his forearm and going back to Atlanta and blah blah blah.

But nothing about Dotel, then or during the half-hour we talked to him today. They just dropped that one on us. Bobby had even said in his radio show that if Wickman wasn’t DL’d, someone would be sent down (he’d told us before that it would be Prado).

Oh, well. We’re trying to get a word with Dotel before game.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.
