K-Rod Hurt? (Merged)

Postby Giambis » Tue Apr 08, 2008 1:05 am

From rotoworld:
Francisco Rodriguez left Monday's game in the ninth inning with an apparent ankle injury.

K-Rod probably wasn't hurt anymore than usual, but he had blown the save by allowing two runs against the Indians, and the Angels wanted Scot Shields in there before things could get any worse. Given the way Rodriguez was struggling, he might benefit from a couple of weeks off. If it happens, either Justin Speier or Shields would close. Shields would normally be the backup, but Speier is the better pitcher right now.

Who do you guys like as insurance, Shields or Speier?

With his violent mechanics, I'm surprised this hadn't happened sooner.

And once again, this is further reason why you never draft closers early.

Wow, he's a mess right now. He really needs to rest up, and only come back when he is 100% before he really hurts himself.
