Donnelly Done?

Postby FantasyFreak » Wed Jun 09, 2004 12:43 am

I havent checked up on him lately, but I just read now that he was transferred to the 60 day DL. Is it even worth having him anymore?

Jun 8 Updating previous items, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports the Anaheim Angels transferred RP Brendan Donnelly (nose/elbow) to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, June 8.

Yes but that 60 day DL is retro'd back to March, if I'm not mistaken. Which would make it pointless..............Prior was on the 60 day DL retro'd back to the start of the year and he's already pitched in a game. So I see no reason why Donnelly couldn't do the same. Unless for some reason they didn't retro it back to the start of the season :-?

well. I think that if a player is put on the 60-day DL that frees up a spot on the 40 man roster... so if donnelly is still some time away the angels might actually need that considering how many of their regulars are hurt.

Yeah but if he's put on the 60 day DL doesn't it retro back to the last regular season game that he played in (in his case, the first game of the year would be the day)? So if they put him on it now, he'd be off of it a week ago :-? Or was he on the 15 day DL to start the year, so it retros back to the middle of April?

you can stay on the 60 day DL as long as necessery, but not shorter than 60 days...

I'm pretty sure you have to come off after 60 days is up...............or else MVP 2004 isn't an accurate depiction of real baseball :-b

I don't think so because when a pitcher blows out his elbow and needs TJ surgery, they put him on the 60-day DL. This is what Yahoo says:

15-day DL as of Apr 1, 2004 (Nasal fractures)

Even when they update it to 60, that's cool. 2 months has already passed. No matter what happens, I would assume that it was mainly for bookkeeping.

That is correct. A player can stay on the 60-Day DL indefinitely (cough, cough, Fat Mo). I don't totally understand it but the 60 allows for more roster flexibility than the 15.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
