I've been remiss in noting that Aaron was placed on the DL on July 14 with shoulder inflammation. I've seen no news since then, but I guess it must be bad because he'd be eligible to be reinstated by now.

I always go the extra mile. That's what happens when you get lost easily.

Rough return to action for Aaron on August 4. At Pawtucket, he managed to record only 5 outs before being removed. The first inning was 1-2-3. He wasn't exactly aided by his shortstop in the second, with Nick Gordon committing an error, but a strike 'em out throw 'em out play instrumented by the redoubtable Willians Astudillo (behind the plate, I guess I need to specify) got him two outs with nobody on. Then things caved in. Ohlman and Miller singled, and Wren tripled to bring in two runs. That was it for Slegers.

 

Ryne Harper came on and promptly served up a homer to Witte, accounting for the third earnie against the starter.

 

I haven't found any reporting yet on this situation, but call it a hunch: Slegers still isn't right and will be back on the DL soon.

... where he won Big Ten Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Year honors in 2013, putting him in good company with Tyler Jay (UI 2015), Alex Wimmers (OSU 2009-10), and Glen Perkins (UM 2004).

Well, whether I guessed right or not, Aaron has indeed been shut down again, after an uncomfortable bullpen session a few days after his abbreviated start.
