Here Come the Injuries

Here we go again. As if last year wasn't bad enough with the multitude of injuries, they are starting to mount yet again this season.

  • Yunel Escobar strained an abdominal muscle on Thursday and might be out three or four games. These little nagging injuries are what slowed his last year.
  • Chipper Jones has missed three games with a bruised left thumb, essentially he is unable to hit against right-handers.
  • Jorge Campillo is experiencing "dead arm" and was placed on the 15-day DL. James Parr was called up to take his spot in the bullpen.
  • Garret Anderson has missed time this year with a left oblique strain.

And this is just the second week of the season. What concerns me is that there might be more dead arm in that bullpen than just Campillo.
