Hmm, I wonder if the Angels would bring up Ervin Santana from AA if he goes on the DL. Santana has been pitching really well and is their top SP prospect. I haven't had much of a chance to see him in person, but I've heard has some nasty stuff.

here's the highlights:
Right-hander Kelvim Escobar said his elbow was "very sore" after giving up four runs and six hits in five innings and somehow striking out nine despite "not being even 80% of the guy I know," he said.

Escobar, who sat out the first half of spring training because of shoulder tightness and the first three weeks of the season because of an elbow sprain, said the pain he experienced Wednesday was in the back of the elbow, in a different area from his sprain.

But Escobar also said his discomfort is very similar to the feeling he experienced when he had bone chips in his elbow, a condition with which he has pitched parts of three seasons. He had surgery to remove bone chips in 1997 and was sidelined for six weeks.

Escobar, whose fastball dipped from its normal 94 mph to about 89 mph Wednesday, is expected to undergo X-rays and an MRI test, and it's possible he'll go on the disabled list or be forced to skip a start. If he continues to pitch, he will use anti-inflammatory medication and get elbow treatments.

"Sometimes the chips move around and they don't bother you, but if they get stuck in a nerve, that's when it gets sore," Escobar said. "I'll do whatever it takes to keep pitching. I don't want to go on the DL. And the last thing I want is surgery, because that would knock me out for six or seven weeks."

this is horrible. I just aquired him as a part of a trade in which I sent Colon out. I hope he gets better. How do you strike out 9 if you're hurting that badly?

Try bugmenot.com. A right click will automatically fill in bogus information in the required fields. Not sure if it works with IE.

Wow... doesn't look good. Hope that's not your money team.

Ouch! Schmidt and Escobar in the same week. :,-(

I'm in a deep league too, this makes Hampton my #2, and really puts the pressure the back of my rotation Patterson, Chacin, and D. Cabrera to get the job done.. not bad for WW pickups, but I don't think they were ever intended to be the horses of my staff like this..
