Well we know that Joba's going to the 15 day DL now. The exact injury is rotator cuff tendinitis which I know nothing about. Joba is going to skip a week and then start throwing again. Their won't be any surgery for Joba which is definitely a good thing. We may see Joba again this year which is also definitely a good thing.
However, wasn't Posada originally diagnosed with a similar injury? And look what happened to him. We need Joba for the stretch run but we also need him to be healthy for next year above all else. For now we`ll just have to ride Ponson/Giese/Kennedy? for anything we can get out of them and just try and stay in the race.
