UTK: Kuo's Prognosis

From the guru of Baseball sports injuries, Will Carroll of Under The Knife, provides his opinion of Kuo's injury.
He's been shut down with inflammation in his pitching shoulder. There's not much information beyond this, but the symptoms (inflammation and pain in the back of his shoulder) could be many things, from a cuff problem to a labrum tear to simple tendinitis. There's no use guessing here; the value is in knowing that he'll be shut down for much of April. Watch to see if he can get back to a throwing program by mid-month. If this stretches into May, we'll know it was one of the worse injuries.

Urbina Sentenced to 14 Years

This is just hot off the presses. Ugueth Urbina, former Expos hurler and member of the 2003 World Series Champion Florida Marlins, receives a 14 year prison term in Venezuela. Apparently, he was involved in attacking five workers on his family ranch with machetes and gasoline. Yikes!
