I was referring to the Angels who don't care about us...not Yahoo!

Doesn't sound good...
From Rotoworld:
Kelvim Escobar has stopped his throwing program after experiencing renewed discomfort in his pitching shoulder.
Escobar hadn't even gotten back on the mound yet, so that he's already feeling soreness is a truly bad sign. Escobar had been shooting for a return in early or mid-May. If he gets shut down for another couple of weeks, then he'd probably get pushed back until at least June.Mar. 25 - 4:09 pm et

From the Baseball Injury Report:

Earlier in the spring, I expressed concern that Escobar’s pitching shoulder was acting up again. He did after all receive treatment late last season and had an offseason to rest then rehab the shoulder.
Fast forward to February 2008 and it surfaced again early in the month during the rehab process. During spring training, Escobar had several positive developments, albeit small ones before suffering a relapse. The latest occurred when the Angeles shutdown Escobar Tuesday March 25 after he felt discomfort over the weekend after 45-foot long toss.

Forty-five foot long toss is light years away from pitching off a mound, against live hitters and throwing breaking balls. Something Escobar has not come close to this spring and will not for some time. The fact he has essentially been in a rehab program for his pitching shoulder six months is troubling, especially when the Angels look for progress in ‘baby steps’ not normal progression.

The Angels have been tight lipped about the exact issue he is dealing with. Shoulder soreness is about as deep as they are getting. Our experience tells us that he is dealing with a structural issue; we believe it is a rotator cuff problem that he is attempting to work his way through the past six months.

At the very least, Escobar will miss the first half of the season. If he is unable to get past even long toss the next time he resumes throwing, he should be a candidate for shoulder surgery and he would miss the entire 2008 season.

I dropped Escobar....I think it is going to be a long time before he comes back and then it probably won't be a major splash when he does anyway. That is now two guys I drafted right before Harden that I have dropped before season. Oh well.

More bad news
From Rotoworld:
Mar. 26 - 2:54 pm et

Kelvim Escobar revealed Wednesday that he has a tear in his right shoulder that could require season-ending surgery.

Escobar ceased throwing after experiencing discomfort in his shoulder Sunday. "I'm concerned, I don't know what's going to happen, I don't even know if I'll be able to pitch again," Escobar said. "I'm still young. I'll be 32 in two weeks, but retirement is getting into my head, because it's hard to rehab. I want to be out there playing, and I've done everything I can do to be healthy." According to the Los Angeles Times, Escobar plans to see if two weeks off improve his shoulder before likely seeing a specialist to determine whether surgery is necessary.

It was my master plan to do a 2 for 1 trade and then pick up Escobar. Thank the Baseball God that it didn't pan out.
