Now that he'll be out a minimum of four weeks, does anybody think he'll be the same hitter when he comes back? Or are we looking at an ugly situation even when he does manage to find his way back into the lineup?
That of course assumes he comes back at all, which I think is still a fairly safe assumption, but anytime your talking about a separated shoulder accompanied by a torn labrum, you could be looking at big trouble. Any predictions?
Interesting, I was under the impression that it was four to six weeks, and I don't think I pulled that figure out of thin air. In any case, the injury sounds pretty nasty, but I think it's encouraging that it's his left shoulder and not right. I hope you're right, but I'll look for a source to support one length of absence or another.
The Diamondbacks haven't ruled out a return two weeks from now, but it's more likely that Richie Sexson will miss four to six weeks with his shoulder injury.
The Diamondbacks believe Sexson has a partially torn labrum in his partially dislocated shoulder, so surgery hasn't been completely ruled out. It's going to be some time before there's any clear indication of when he will return.

Ok, so I guess 2 weeks is an outside chance, but I highly doubt it, and this report doesn't seem too encouraging.
I can live with 4-6 weeks. Better than rushing him back and being mediocre the rest of the year. He's proven to be pretty durable so far in his career and is still young so he should heal quick. Time to put Hafner to use in the meantime

2 weeks does sound a little too optimistic. Beyond that I don't think anyone has any idea at all if he'll come back strong when he comes back. Well, maybe David Blaine or Miss Cleo, but they don't seem to be talking.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
one thing you never want to hear about a power hitter is that he has injured his humerus bone in any way shape or form. if richie had hurt his throwing arm he'd be out for the season. 4-6 weeks is a great assumption with 6 weeks being the safer bet. both for the d-backs and us fantasy owners.
