Meat Wagon Update

While we wait to see what will happen with Jeff Keppinger, here are some Meat Wagon updates for you:

From the Chronicle:
Brandon Lyon has a partial tear in his rotator cuff (which I kind of thought was established back on May 5), and his shoulder apparently has about half its strength. Which means, once he gets back, he should be able to throw a 176mph fastball.

From McTaggart:
Jason Bourgeois got a plasma replacement therapy injection in his strained left oblique, and got some advice from Laynce Nix (of course he did):
"He told me to take it easy. He said, 'Whatever you do, don't move.' He told me by next week I'm going to be hitting in the cage and thinking I'm ready, and I'm going to step out on the field and take a swing like I was in a game -- a 110-percent swing -- and it's going to hurt big time."

Jason Michaels will likely be activated on Friday, meaning that Brian Bogusevic is probably heading back to OKC (speculation mine).

Keppinger's rehab assignment could span up to three weeks.
