Torii Hunter

Surprised that no one's posted their concern about his injury. He's been awesome this year (at a bargain draft position), and any team that has him has to be feeling the hurt of his DL stint.

I'm a bit concerned about the mixed messages I'm hearing regarding the severity of this injury. At first it was made out to be not a big deal. No more than the 15-day minimum, the early blurbs said. Mostly precautionary, with some well-timed rest around the ASB. But now I'm seeing quotes from Mike Scoscia that say he's expecting Hunter to be out much longer than that ... at least a month.

I'm seeing those quotes as well... Hunter seems to think it will be 15 days whereas Soscia is being careful...

I think it will be 15 days, 3 weeks max... but i'm not overly concerned yet about Hunter, at least the allstar break counts
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...

Hunter (oblique) has started doing some light workouts, the LA Times reports.
Hunter said he is "making progress, big time. It's still sore, but it's way better." Hunter is expected to return around August 1.
