I heard that his flight actually got delayed and there was some doubt whether he was going to make the stadium on time.

Uh oh. Apparently he was having problems with his back again tonight and had to be scratched:

Mike Sweeney - 1B - Kansas City Royals Aug 4

Mike Sweeney rejoined the Royals today, but he was held out of tonight's lineup after feeling stiffness in his upper back.
Not good. Manager Tony Pena said he didn't know when Sweeney would be back in the lineup. It could happen as soon as tomorrow if Sweeney's back is better, but more problems are a possibility.

As a Sweeney owner, that scares me a bit.

It seems that folks who get these mid-year back injuries never recover 100% -- it's always "acting up". If I sense 1-2 more of these incidents, I may try to move him if that is even possible.

The KC Star reports that Sweeney aggravated his injury -- he won't be in the lineup again for at least another 3-4 days.
