Mahle Day-to-Day

That's about as good a news as we could hope for. Only problem is...this makes twice in the last 5-6 weeks that this pretty much same issue has happened to him. You just can't help wondering that there's more going on with his shoulder, that's being missed somehow. Fingers crossed. Hope he only misses a turn and is back ok after that.

That's great news, but Ive grown skeptical of teams medical pronouncements having to be adjusted later. Skubal was day-to-day, until he wasnt.

Hopeful I am. But pensive. Need to see him back and throwing normally to breathe easy.

This is where I'm at too. Day to day can just as easily mean "we don't know yet."

I was about to say, organizations seem to only send damage goods for pitchers.  How many of the trades have our pitchers been hurt a few appearances in?

Paddack

Guy from Giants

now Mahle?

 

Deleon was damage goods too for the trade that never happened.

Come on. This is the Twins' crack medical staff, where 'bruises' turn into broken bones after a week or so; and 'strains' turn into 'torn this or thats'; This is just their first optimistic guess. I'm going to go big and bold and go on record that even if he makes another start this year, he'll come out early, and then we'll find out the actual level of his injury.

Maybe it's time to trade for a knuckleballer.  At least they would not have arm trouble:-)

They knew that Mahle had a sore shoulder when he was traded but he was pitching thru it. Knowing this they should have dialed Mahle back but to avoid the blow back from some fans & Mahle himself they left him in. 

If they had conserved him, he'd be still pitching against HOU.

A lot of injuries for sure but Maeda and Odorizzi were healthy the season after being traded. As we’re bullpen pieces like Romo.

I'd be very surprised if he makes his next start.

Still, good news.

Well it's against Houston, so the Twins might as well be just put Nick Gordon on the mound because we know they prefer not to score runs against the Astros any more.

Not a bad idea, as the 'Stros just hung a 21 spot on the WipeSox, may need to waste a few innings. Maybe Blyleven and Black Jack could come out of retirement for a quickie.
