Rafael Soriano to be sidelined 6-8 weeks

9 Comments

Rafael Soriano’s MRI came back and it revealed an inflamed ligament. Which is not torn which means no appointment with Dr. James Andrews’ Tommy-John-6000 machine.  At least not yet.

Andrews recommends rest and then a throwing program for Soriano, together which will have him out for six to eight weeks.  Which is cool, I guess, but I’m having a hard time remembering the last guy who did the rest + throwing program who ended up being fine on the other end without surgery.  But hey, at least Soriano has two more years and $25 million coming to him after this one in which he can rehab and/or recover, whichever the case may be.
