  • Pineiro has a tight right shoulder
  • Cassevah has an inflamed pitching shoulder
  • Scott Downs fractured his left big toe (or should that be his bog left toe, or would that imply that he only has one toe on his left side and it is oversized?)
  • Kendry(s) is listed as still recovering from ankle surgery and having a "left big toe soreness" (Cue Tony Bennett: "I Left My ...Toe ... in some big soreness").
  • Willits has a calf strain and Sandoval an oblique strain.

Andrew Romine, Frankie 2-Rod, Trevor Bell and Matt Palmer got optioned to AAA Salt Lake.
