The Curious Case of the Strained Achilles Heel

Wonder how Lee got hurt? Let him tell you in his own words...

“Before I hit the home run, (Yovani Gallardo) threw a sinker in and I was trying to get to that ball and I kind of rotated at the plate (and) my spikes got caught in,” he said. “Couldn't rotate, so I put a lot of pressure on it. That's when I felt it. I feel a lot better, way better than yesterday after it happened. I came out early, did some exercises, ran a little bit. It's not 100 percent but it's good enough to play."


Brian Moehler will likely make another rehab start before...doing something. Says Coop:
“I would think he’d probably have to make one more (rehab start). The info I got he wasn’t quite trusting it, so I would think probably one more. That’s what I would think. He’s got to feel good until he can get his pitch count up there and still maintain velocity and everything and keep his legs under him instead of having his leg issue. It’s a little difficult. He needs to get used to that brace and trust that brace. That thing supports him.”


Doug Brocail was activated from the DL, and that means Jeff Fulchino made his way on back to Round Rock. Sayonara, Jeff Fulchino. But with this bullpen, we'll probably see you soon. I like you.
