Prior has the same injury as Nomar. Nobody is suggesting Nomar will be out till after the All-Star break. The arm injury, I'm pretty sure, is due to not throwing much over the past month. Once he gets used to throwing a ball again, mid-late May doesn't seem unrealistic. Think of now as his spring training. People getting worked up over his arm soreness are probably thinking 3 more months of DL because there were rumours of TJ being needed. Well if the ligament is 100%, which and MRI proved to be correct, then TJ is totally out of the question.
My prediction: May 19th. Why? I don't know. But people thinking late-July/August are crazy.
