    Any word on Waldrop?

    What's the status on Kyle Waldrop's rehab assignment? He hasn't pitched for Ft. Myers since May 14th. Did he have a setback, or is he working more in EST?

    I look to you, great Twins minor league minds!

    I've been wondering about that myself. Clearly, the Twins aren't really concerned about getting him back of the DL. They probably don't know what to do with him when he is ready. He sure won't be with the big club, given how their bullpen has done. Maybe they can stretch him out to be a starter; they're going to need plenty to finish the season.

    Does not look good... Here is the Transactions listing:

    RHP Kyle Waldrop (right elbow strain) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 26. He began pitching in extended spring training games April 30. He began a rehab assignment with Class A Fort Myers on May 12. He should return by early June

    He has a "right elbow strain"; they perscribe "rest and rehab"; he is done; he pitches a couple of innings in high A and has to be shut down again (more rest and rehab). In this organization with this medical staff just does not sound too good. We have seen this story way too many times... From Neshek to Baker to Wimmers...

    they said it was a strain, not a tear.....so hopefully......however, upon a 2nd opinion you never know what they'll find

    That is excellent news. Let's hope that he has made a full recovery.

    I'm cautiously hoping for the best on Waldrop, hoping that what I'm hearing is not true.

    Waldrop pitched an inning at Ft. Myers yesterday. I know he had a precautionary MRI about a week ago.

    Seth, what are you hearing that you hope is not true?

    I'm going to keep that one with me for right now. I want to see how it plays out. For now, Waldrop had a good inning this weekend and hopefully that can continue.
