That's lousy he's on the DL, but with the lack of info heretofore, I'm just relieved it wasn't an arm problem.

Well, and I ask this question in complete ignorance, but- to what extent could an oblique strain suggest shoulder/ elbow issues? In other words, could some other vague injury force him to overcompensate, etc?

That may be a totally stupid question, but thought I'd throw it out there.

If it's any kind of serious oblique strain (good chance that it is if he's DLed) it'd hurt him to breathe much less throw. I doubt he threw a pitch after the strain, so the risk of compensatory/cascade injury would be pretty low.

Is there any chance it could be the opposite, though? Maybe a dead-arm/ sore shoulder thing he felt compelled to work through that manifests itself initially as such?

Again, don't even know if that's possible, but I was just thinking out loud.

PAWSOX PLAYER MOVES – The PawSox today added catcher Corky Miller to their roster (he was signed by the Red Sox as a free agent on Sunday) and placed catcher Ken Huckaby on the 7-day disabled list (retroactive to April 22) with a right hand injury suffered when he was hit by a backswing during a game in Charlotte one week ago (April 18).

Miller, 30, went to spring training with Seattle but began the year with Triple-A Tacoma and was 2-for-6 in 2 games before being released on April 16. The 6-1, 246 lbs. catcher has played parts of five seasons in the Major Leagues with Cincinnati (2001-04) and Minnesota (2005) hitting .193 in 88 games. He played in 59 games with Rochester (AAA-Minnesota) last season hitting .229 with 11 HR & 25 RBI. He also spent time with Louisville (AAA-Reds) from 2001-04 and was named the International League’s Best Defensive Catcher by league managers in 2003.

I'd have to guess that Soto went on the DL. He was pulled from the game two nights ago and did not play last night.

Of course the Greenville radio guys made no mention of why Bell was playing.. but he did make a good running catch in the top of the first and then leadoff the bottom half of the inning with a single.

Rozier gives up five runs in the third inning, but only one earned.

He gives up two more earned runs in the fourth before being yanked for John Barnes.

Final line - 3.2 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 3 ER, 4 K, 2 HR

John Barnes (outfielder converted to knuckleballer) just gave up a solo bomb.

Drive tied 8-8, top 7th

Wow, color me disappointed with Rozier's performance so far this year. I really thought this year might be the turning point where he begins to put it together...

Scouting director David Chadd has worked hard with the Epstein organization to reconstruct what had become a shallow farm system. The initial Instructional League assignment for 6-foot-5, 18-year-old lefty Mike Rozier -- to whom they gave $1.55 million -- was beyond their imagination.


And then Rozier discovered how much food $1.5 million could buy.

I felt the same way, but unfortunately the only thing he's putting together is a reuben on rye.

Hopefully the Sox can get him back on a conditioning program, and get him back into some kind of shape. He's still a young kid, so it's not like he can't lose the weight. I do wonder whether he just pigged out all winter, or whether he was just trying to bulk up, and went about it all wrong (i.e. too many protein shakes, and not enough lifting).

He pitched well in his first 2 innings and then fell apart. So it may be merely a conditioning issue.

I've strained my lat a couple times and had some other upper back muscle strains ("auxiliary muscles of respiration") -- it hurts to breathe. It's just not the kind of thing you can work through because it hurts just as badly to use muscles near the ones that are injured. He could have overworked his lat trying to compensate for shoulder or elbow soreness, but lat strains are pretty common, especially early in a season.

Pawtucket loses to Durham, 4-0.

Jimmy Serrano went 7 innings for the Pawsox, giving up 8 hits and 2 walks, allowing 3 runs while striking out 8. Tim Bausher went the final 2 innings, giving up a hit, a walk and a HBP, allowing a run while striking out one.

Tyler Minges and Rod Nye led the offense, each going 2/4; Minges with a double. Hee-Seop Choi went 1/3 with a double and a walk. Adam Stern went 1/4. And, as one can expect in a shutout loss... that was it.

Dustin Pedroia, Jeff Bailey, and Trent Durrington each went 0/4. Alejandro Machado and the newest Pawsox, Corky Miller, each went 0/3.

Portland loses to Altoona, 5-4 in 11 innings.

Jose Vaquedano went the first 5 innings, giving up a HR and 2 walks, allowing a run while striking out 4 and throwing a WP. Barry Hertzler went the next 2 innings, giving up a hit and a walk, striking out one. Edgar Martinez pitched a nearly perfect 8th inning (walking one)... and then, perhaps, had his worst inning of his pitching career. In the 9th, Edgar gave up a single, a HR, a ground out, another HR, a foul pop and a K. Final Line: BS, 2 IP, 3 H (2 HR), 1 BB, 3 R, 1 K. Kevin Frederick pitched the 10th inning giving up a hit, a walk and a WP... but not allowing a run. Unfortunately, in the 11th, Kevin gave up 3 consecutive singles and allowed the winning run.

[Portland's pen has been really good. A game like this is going to happen, unfortunately]

David Bacani led the offense, going 2/4 with his first HR of the year (in the 9th inning). Luis Jimenez went 1/3 with a walk and his 2nd HR of the year (also in the 9th... back to back with Bacani). Dusty Brown and Zach Borowiak each went 1/4. Jeremy West went 1/5. Chad Spann went 0/3 with a walk. Matt Van der Bosch, Brandon Moss and David Murphy each went 0/5.

Pawsox Stories:

Game Story

The PawSox' offense couldn't get much going. After two hits in the first inning, they didn't get a runner past second base the rest of the way.

"You just have to tip your cap to the opposition sometimes. They shut us down," said Pawtucket manager Ron Johnson. Seddon "threw the ball good. Very impressive."


Seadog Stories:

Seadogs

That 4-1 advantage was short-lived, however, as the Curve, who had only two hits entering the ninth, tied the score against closer Edgar Martinez, who gave up a two-run homer to Adam Boeve and a tying solo shot to Roneberg. It was Roneberg's first start since being sidelined by back problems in spring training.

"I'm very surprised the way the ball carries here, especially when you get it up in the air," Claus said. "I didn't think home runs were going to be a factor tonight, but they ended up changing the game.

"You've got to give their hitters credit. They got some fastballs out over the plate, up in the zone, and they put good swings on them."


(Yes, that would be former Seadog Brett Ronenberg)

Blue Rocks Stories:

Drive Stories:

Game Story

"I think the game was lost in the (third) when we gave up five runs, then two more in the fourth," said Greenville manager Luis Alicea. "I think, if we had shut them down or held them to one or two runs, they probably wouldn't have been as aggressive as they were. But they can swing the bats."
