How long is Rocco Baldelli going to be out for? Does anyone know what the status of his injury is? Thanks

I like the guy, but unfortunately, this year wont be his year...

No problem ... here's the official Rotoworld report on Baldelli:

Rocco Baldelli may play right field after returning from a torn ACL, manager Lou Piniella said.
The Rays won't consider it yet, but there's also the possibility that Baldelli could return as a DH in June or July, especially if either Josh Phelps or Travis Lee disappoints. The Rays should have some sort of plan in place heading into the exhibition schedule because they want to leave Aubrey Huff in one spot. If they think Baldelli will return as a right fielder, Huff will play left. If they want to leave Baldelli in center, Huff will play right. And if Baldelli won't return until August... well, there's a good chance Huff will be gone by then.
