In a nutshell
The righty, who will be re-evaluated today, speculated that he might not need to skip a turn in the rotation.


Clay Buchholz is on the wire, so I'll be monitoring this one very carefully...

It was against the Phillies, so I'm not too upset about his performance, but that sore back is definitely a reason for concern. Let's hope he's alright..

None the less if I still owned him I would wait for his next good start and sell high. He finished last year on something like a 1-8 run after starting 5-0 (numbers may be a bit off, but you catch the drift). He's got a lot of innings on that shoulder, and I'm not sure how long he can keep up the positive performances. Look at the teams he has played this year: SEA twice, BAL twice, KC... sell high while there is still time.

Colon to the DL with a stiff back. Probably from having to support his huge gut 24-7. :*)

My gut told me to bench him last night and I went with it, fortunately. :-b

Bartolo Colon is expected to be placed on the disabled list with stiffness in his lower back.

Colon came out of Monday's game and took a number of violent looking hacks at Cole Hamels offerings. "I think I hurt it on that swing where my helmet fell off," Colon said. Daisuke Matsuzaka is expected back this weekend, and will take Colon's spot in the rotation. The Red Sox will call up Chris Smith from Triple-A to provide bullpen depth.

Any chance Masterson stays up when Dice-K replaces Colon in the rotation?
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Indeed, the man is quite portly. Its too bad that most owners don't consider his girth and the fact that he looks exactly like Andre the Giant in their trade negotiations.

I am so dumbfounded right now. Beckett, Dice-K, Lester, Wake... Masterson/Clay/Bucholz? I don't want to have this guy on my team, even if it is the D/L slot, if he's not even going to return to a spot in the rotation. What is going on here?
