Kelvim Escobar - S - Angels
Kelvim Escobar (elbow) expects his latest stint on the disabled list to be longer than a couple weeks.
By choosing not to have surgery on his injured elbow, Escobar is risking further damage down the road. However, he said he hopes to return around the All-Star break. ''I'm definitely going to need more than two weeks off, because we want to be very careful with this,'' Escobar said. ''It's going to take longer to get back out there, and if I have a setback I'll be out even longer. The last thing I want is to have surgery, but at that point, I'll have run out of options.''

I think Santana's gonna be stickin' around this time.
