PHOENIX -- There was a sigh of relief in Brewers camp on Saturday as an
examination of ace pitcher Ben Sheets revealed that the pain which caused
him to leave Thursday's Cactus League game was a back muscle strain that
isn't expected to drastically alter his plans for the 2006 season.
Although the Brewers don't anticipate knowing for at least a week whether
Sheets might be ready to make an Opening Day start, they take comfort in the
outlook that Thursday's setback doesn't appear to be a major complication.
"It's a strain of a muscle that's taking on more of a workload than it used
to," team doctor William Raasch said. "That's where we are right now."
....for the love of God, please shut him down for a couple weeks.
