BJ Upton's Shoulder

Postby reider3 » Sat Jan 24, 2009 12:38 pm

So someone offered me a trade offer for BJ Upton and I was wondering what the latest was on his shoulder injury? I heard they may take it slow to start the season and that he will probably miss some of ST. Just curious to see if there is any newer news on him? The good news is he plays indoors in Florida so cold weather will only affect him on the road.

From Rotoworld 1/14/09...

B.J. Upton believes he might sit out the first week of the season in his recovery from shoulder surgery.
"It's coming along a lot faster that we thought it would but at the same time we can't rush it," he said. "I'm hoping (to be ready Opening Day), but if not hopefully when they get back off the road to play New York. They said cold weather is probably going to be an issue with it, make it ache a little bit. So we're going to be careful with it and hopefully when they get back off the road I can start up."
