Klink update

Defenders 3B Simon Klink has been placed on the disabled list retroactive to May 21. I spoke with Klink on Friday and he seemed pretty optimistic regarding his return, noting that he was scheduled to take batting practice Monday. Yesterday, his optimisim was restrained, telling me he hit off a tee and hoped to play by Thursday. Manager Dave Machemer told me that Klink "isn't close."

When dealing with shoulder in injuries, especially when it involves the rotator cuff, as Klink suggested, you have to be VERY cautious.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
