NIH: Patterson to the DL.

Another of my infrequent posts while moviing, but this was something Big And Of Note. John Patterson is back on the DL for the third time in two seasons. Of course, I'd guess that he probably shouldn't have come OFF the DL this last time, but what's done is done, and who knows how much he's reinjured himself. Early talk? Early talk is that we've seen the last of Patterson until the 2007 campaign. Right now he's only on the 15 day, and it is retroactive a few days, so he could technically be back before the end of the month.

But that's a big "technically". Boy is hurting, and hurting bad. He shouldn't have come back, and in doing so, has probably only made things worse. I'd almost say that they should just shut him down for 2006. We're not trying to prove anything, and it's more important that he be around in 2007, '08, '09, '10, etc.

In other news as long as I'm updating...

Damian Jackson is suffering from something that sounds very nasty: esophagus spasms. He's listed as day-to-day.

Livan Hernandez's first post-break start was pushed back two days and will be happening tomorrow in order to give his knee more rest.

Pedro Astacio will be making his third start after coming off the DL tonight.

Tony Armas is scheduled to make his first start since mid-June to lead off the series in Florida on Monday.
