Sheets said he will visit with his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, next week and hopes to learn when he can resume throwing after having a torn flexor tendon fixed in February. That injury, which was confirmed in a physical with the Rangers, killed a preliminary agreement on a two-year contract about a week before spring training. The Rangers continue to "watch from a distance," Daniels said. It does appear that they'd be willing to bring him in if he is able to rehab, but that is still several steps away. Sheets is nothing more than an injury-risk stashee for the deepest of leagues right now. The contract he signs might even be a minor league deal initially, so he wouldn't be placed on the DL. Since you can't stash Sheets on the DL, that hurts his "stashability."

It doesn't look promising at all. Don't expect him to be pitching for anyone this year.
