Sheffield out-DL?

Postby colsod01 » Wed Aug 22, 2007 5:50 pm

just in from Rotoworld
Gary Sheffield will rest his sore right shoulder on Wednesday night and said he might need to go on the disabled list.

Sheffield hasn't driven in a run in six games, and he's hitting .185 with one homer this month. "It's time for me to shut it down and get myself right," he said. "I'm doing myself and my team a disservice (by playing)." Marcus Thames and Cameron Maybin both figure to play regularly while Sheffield is out.

i rember at the end of arpil i was really close to dropping sheffield and then he was a monster till the allstar break and then he got this shoulder injury thats been nagging him ever since. hopefully 2 weeks is good enough b/c playoffs start for me in two weeks. i wouldnt cut him though maybe rest will be good for him.

edit: on espn says hes out indefintity.

if you have the roster space, keep him. but from the sound of it here in detroit he could be out for a while.... he's not the kind of guy you want to cut though. he wants to play and most of the time, if he's playing hurt he's still better than most options on the WW.

Yeah.. if you have room on your bench I wouldn't drop Sheff, since he could come back and hit you 4 or 5 HRs in a week if he's right....

I have a feeling he is out for 2-3 weeks at least though... I mean the guy needed treatment in between every AB. There is only so much cortisone you can pump into a man. What a horrible time for the Tigers too... a healthy Sheff would've won them a game or two a week recently, as Maggs and Guillen have been carrying the offense on their backs.

Leyland keeps calling him day-to-day but if you listen to what Sheffield is saying he doesn't plan on playing until he is good to go. Watching the games when he was really hurting you could see he wasn't the same guy. Swinging at horrible pitches and not making contact. Also, he was swinging right through fastballs which is something he never does when he's healthy.

I read this morning that he may be out close to the 15 day DL time, but they don't think he'll actually go on the DL, hoping for a few days. With rosters set to expand a week from tomorrow, they can afford to go a couple days w/o an extra bat and it doesn't hurt the team. IMO, he'd be DL if it were May or June.

Doesn't hurt the TIgers, but it bugs the heck out of fantasy owners who can't pick up a replacement if he's not DL'd. :-t

Sheff always does this -- admirable, I guess, but annoying in fantasy.
Be excellent to each other.

Detroit Free Press
Gary Sheffield's right shoulder kept him out of the lineup again Sunday, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to predict when he might return.

Though the club has said he could be back for this week's series in Kansas City, Sheffield said Sunday that he might not make the trip. When asked if it's possible that he's done for the season, Sheffield said, "I can't say. I really can't say."

He added: "I've done everything. I've had two cortisone shots in my shoulder. We might have to do a third, but is the third one going to fix the issue?

"This feels more like an injury than being hurt. I've had shoulder issues before. I can play with pain. I can play with being hurt. When it's an injury, then it's different."

He's got a strange way with words, that's for sure.
