Does anyone have any news from his MRI that he had yesterday?

An MRI on Yunel Escobar's left shoulder revealed an inflamed rotator cuff.

He'll likely be able to avoid the disabled list, and is currently considered day-to-day. The Braves hope the All-Star break will provide him with ample rest, and that he'll be ready to rejoin the team on Friday.

I'd waive him for Lillibridge at this point.

It looks like he is out until Friday

Yunel Escobar, SS, Atlanta Braves Saturday 7/19, 8:58 PM CT

Yunel Escobar could be headed to the DL, as he just can't get over his left shoulder injury. The shortstop will be evaluated by team physician Dr. Xavier Duralde on Sunday, at which time the Braves will determine whether they need to place him on the disabled list, according to MLB.com. "He wants to play, and that's great," GM Frank Wren said. "But at the same time, we don't want him to jeopardize the rest of the season by playing a day or two too early."

Our View: We expect Escobar to land on the DL, as the Braves need to clear a roster spot for Rafael Soriano. He would be eligible to return next Friday.

Thanks for the info. I dont know how I should feel about this. I was looking forward to him being DL-d so I could FINALLY get a replacement in there for him. He better catch fire soon or I`m liable to bail on him anyway. Its been a L-O-N-G time since he produced:whether in the line-up or not.
