EME update

Eddy Martinez-Esteve has been sent to extended spring training. I haven't had the chance to speak to Dave Machemer but I will get more on this for you later.

As was in today's Norwich Bulletin, EME is back in Arizona working on his strength (both shoulders and hamstring).

Dave Machemer said: "We sat down and talked to him and made a decision based on how he feels and how the Giants feel."

I really think this is it for EME as far as the Giants are concerned. There's no timetable for his return, but when you consider the investment the Giants have made in him, they aren't going to rush him. They want him at 100% put physically and mentally. That way if he fails, there are no excuses. If he succeeds, then they gave him a fair and healthy chance.
