Velasquez and Meredith headed to Kissimmee

Via WTHB we find a link to this Eric L. Smith piece on the injuries sustained by Vincent Velasquez and Brandon Meredith.

Velasquez hurt his groin working out earlier this week, and it sounds bad:

JetHawks manager Rodney Linares said he wasn't sure how long Velasquez, who is 4-1 with 2.89 ERA, will be down there but added he might need surgery.

Brandon Meredith injured his shoulder during batting practice:

"I expect him to be back up here in a week or 10 days," Linares said. "But I want him to be 100 percent healthy when he gets back."
