Predictions on How Long K-Rod Closes? Where does he rank?

That's good news for you. Given the swelling and problems he had, they were suspecting much worse. He's back to being evaluated day-to-day already, so unless he experiences a setback, he should be ready once the 15 days are up.

Update on Percival is that he now has a forearm problem. He's at least another two weeks away, probably more.

The pronator muscle is located in the forearm. This is nothing new.

Bad forearm + bad elbow = Percival out WAY longer than Rajin keeps pimping.

There's also no guarantee that K-Rod can be a good closer. People are always looking for the next Rivera to just slide in and close but it's not that easy.

Very true. My point is that people in this thread are expecting Percival to come back as soon as his DL time is up, and I just don't see it happening that easily.

Ok, I'll qualify it for you... IF Percival comes back healthy, he will close again. Mike Scioscia wants Percival to close because it sets up his bullpen to how he likes it.
