Moehler may be out for season

Bernardo Fallas tells us that the popping Brian Moehler heard in his groin during his simulated game today may end his season.

"It's just frustrating because I had felt really good the last week and felt good throwing bullpens and had been feeling really good today up until that pitch."

The setback leaves open the possibility of Moehler, who will have an MRI in Houston today, being unable to return for what remains of the season.
And while we're at it, why don't we go ahead and just officially shut down Felipe Paulino, whose shoulder isn't getting any better.

"I've tried every which way to get my shoulder to heal — cortisone injections, rest, anti-inflammatories, even massages - and nothing has worked. It's incredible."

He'll meet with Dr. James Andrews - provided Andrews has fully extracted himself from Brett Favre's colon - next week in Florida for a second opinion.
