I hate to say it, but it's the Rich Harden club now.

Harden headed to DL
From SF Gate
Devine up....so Harden to DL - update
From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser in Toronto

**update**Manager Bob Geren confirms that Devine is en route to Toronto and he's expected to land right about now (5:30 p.m. Eastern). When Devine gets here, Rich Harden will be placed on the disabled list. Geren hasn't officially named Lenny DiNardo the starter for Saturday's game at Cleveland, but he said if DiNardo isn't needed between now and then, he'd be an option.

**initial post**Joey Devine's name is written in the bullpen portion of the A's lineup card for tonight's game, though the right-handed reliever wasn't yet in the Oakland clubhouse.

That really can only signal one thing: a likely DL stint for Rich Harden. Adding a reliever gives the A's some depth if Lenny DiNardo takes Harden's spot in the rotation, and Harden had indicated that he didn't think he'd be ready to go on Saturday at Cleveland.

Harden last worked on April 2, so if he is indeed DL-bound, he'd be eligible to come off a week from today. He has a subscpularis strain under his right arm, an injury he said is considered minor.

There aren't any other injuries I'm aware of that would involve the A's bringing up a pitcher, but nothing has been announced and no one is around to provide an explanation. I'm sure it will all become clear in the next hour or two.

Just saw it's official. First DL trip of the year. Not even mid-April. I nearly regretted dealing him for Sheets, but now I'm all smiles...

IMO, Harden for Sheets is a lateral move. Good luck with that!

Done with Harden, the 2 starts were nice! Francis is on waivers and maybe I can get him or anyone will be better than Harden.

Well, at least those who had "April 10" in their pool can recoup some of their NCAA bracket losses.

Oh, and as far as his eligibility to return on April 17 ... how long can you hold your breath?

I dumped him in the one league I had him in, it's my fun league with a bunch of friends that aren't too fantasy savvy and are scared of guys on the DL, so he isn't going anywhere. (I've already grabbed Granderson and Lackey off the DL, yeah they are that bad..eric byrnes was also dropped and grabbed by me, it's pretty bad when you manage to have two first round picks in Han-Ram and Holliday on your team along with my OF - Holliday/Crawford/Beltran/Magglio/Byrnes/Granderson without making a single trade :-b )

Check this quote from Billy Beane
From Yahoo Player Notes(via Rotowire)
Apr 11 Oakland GM Billy Beane indicated that Harden (shoulder) could be sidelined awhile, the Contra Costa Times reports.
Recommendation: "Rich has had a lot of (health) issues," Beane said. "We're not holding our breath. We're optimistic, but history tells you to be realistic." Harden will likely attempt to throw again over the weekend, but you should be accustomed to expecting the worst when it comes to Harden.



Later Rich Harden hello Manny Parra.

This just in: Rich Harden slipped while microwaving a burrito and subsequently severed his manhood.

Get well soon Rich :~(
