Escobar to the DL

Postby mikemcj55 » Sun Apr 03, 2005 1:33 am

Where did this come from??

From rotoworld.com

Angels placed RHP Kelvim Escobar on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 31, with a right elbow strain.
There was no sign this was coming. It was his shoulder that bothered Escobar at the start of the spring. That his elbow is now giving him trouble is of major concern, even if it turns out to be only a minor injury. It's unknown yet how the Angels will replace Escobar. They could move Kevin Gregg into the rotation and give Jake Woods a bullpen spot. Signing someone like Darren Oliver might also be a possibility. Apr. 3 - 12:28 am et

Suddenly I understand why they tried making him their 5th starter. Apparently they were just trying to delay his start.

At this point, I would say K Brown is droppable for you.

I'd say Lilly is definitely droppable. Unless it's an extremely deep league. Possibly Morris as well, if you only have 1 DL spot.
