Rich Harden, SP OAK
News: The Athletics placed infielder Donnie Murphy on the 15-day DL with a strained rib cage muscle and moved right-hander Rich Harden (strained right shoulder) from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL. Harden, sidelined since July 12 because of a strained shoulder, is now throwing from 140 feet at Oakland's spring training facility in Arizona.
Analysis: Harden will try to start some games before the end of the season, which makes him a DL stashee in deeper leagues. It's likely any games he starts before the end of the season are limited to five or six innings, but he can (could, maybe, pray for him to be?) be effective in those starts.
Wow, makes you want to run to pick him up huh!
