Swung hard and missed at a pitch, immediately went to the ground clutching his upper left arm/shoulder area. He left the game.

This doesn't sound good at all. How long does it usually take to recover from a separated shoulder??

Is that what they said happened? Seperated shoulder? Unless they damaged something they usually come back pretty quick from this.

The Rays tv guys said that this was something that happened to him about once a year. If thats the case, then all them Tampa Bay fans around here can probably shed a little more light on the situation.

I am not lucky this year

The latest from Rotoworld:

B.J. Upton is day-to-day with a left shoulder strain suffered during a swing on Thursday.

Last time it happened in 2006, Upton missed five games before returning. A similar absence is possible this time. Nathan Haynes would fill in for him in center field.

Not good, but if this is accurate we dodged a bullet
