Update per his yahoo profile:
Jun 12 Sheffield has begun taking swings and is set to begin hitting live batting practice as he works his way back from a strained left oblique muscle he suffered May 26 at Anaheim.
Advice: This is the 12th time on the DL for the 20-year veteran and nine-time All-Star, who is hitting just .213 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 39 games.
Detroit DH Gary Sheffield (oblique) is expected to take batting practice Tuesday. He went on the 15-day DL on May 27.
Sheffield is eligible to come off the DL soon, but the Tigers might want to give him a rehab stint first, depending on how the batting session goes. He is hitting just .213 with three homers and 12 RBI in 39 games, but he's established himself as a much better hitter than that over his long career. Think about putting in a claim for him if someone dropped him in your league.
Anyone have any more insight on this? He's available in some of my leagues and was curious if he's worth the spot (my DL's are full though, just like most teams this year...what a crazy year for injuries).
