Peavy out 4-6 weeks...

Postby accohen » Fri May 28, 2004 9:37 pm

MLB.com article-- Peavy is out 4-6 weeks. They said the MRI looked real good, and there is tendinitis present, but all ligaments looked sound. Sounds like they are going to be extra cautious with him and totally shut him down for 2 weeks, and then slowly work him back.....makes it sound like it will be the full six weeks. Just some more news to add to my fantasy baseball injury induced depression..... :-/

There goes my season.....

I was starting to move up in the rankings and with Prior coming back soon my team was looking up for the first time in a while. This is not good. Hopefully I will find some Tulips while I'm searching for roses.....

Too bad there is a limit to the number of DL spots on one team because I have a pretty good MASH sqaud.

Yikes. Not good. I had just got him up for my midseason league too. Hopefully he's more on the 4 week end of the prediction.

He's a horse on my keeper staff as well. But I'd rather him be out 4-6 weeks than a year+.

I posted the other day that teams cannot be trusted when they say 'tendinitis' or 'inflammation.' It is almost always worse than they make it out to be. In this case I am pretty sure they have no idea what is wrong with him which is extremely worrying. I don't mean to burst anybody's bubble, but from an ESPN article on teams covering up injuries (that I quoted the other day when Peavy originally went down):

Tendinitis: Like inflammation, it says something and says nothing. Tendinitis is a symptom, rather than the source of the problem; it's like saying a player has a runny nose, rather than addressing why he has a runny nose. "You say a player has tendinitis and what might really be going on is that he has loose cartilage in his knee," said one executive. "You say a pitcher has tendinitis, and it might be that he's got a serious tear. When you get right down to it, tendinitis could cover any number of things."

I blew it! Yesterday I gave up Zambrano/Sheff for Vlad/Peavy. I didnt realize that Peavy was hurt. The guy I traded with didn't disclose...he is very honest and so I accepted. Think I will regret it?

You might have gotten the better end of that deal but that depends, was that Zambrano Victor or Carlos? lol
