Paulino may return after the Break

Although he's eligible to come off the DL next week, Felipe Paulino may not return until after the All-Star Break.

"We're definitely going to be cautious with him, especially since he's such a special arm. We want to make sure he's 100 percent and his strength is back where it needs to be. We need to err on the side of caution and let him get strong."

Agree. 100%.

That's fine by me. His innings needed to be limited this year, and it might be a good idea to do it now, since the rotation may take a big hit with Oswalt, Myers, or both being traded in July.

That way, Paulino can pitch later in the year so that the bullpen doesn't get destroyed (as much).

Agreed. He has very good stuff. No use in wasting it in a meaningless season, just for the hell of it.
