Twins put Baker on DL

14 posts in this topic

FORT MYERS, FLA. — The Twins placed their planned Opening Night starter Scott Baker on the disabled list this morning with right shoulder stiffness.

Francisco Liriano will start Opening Night against Seattle, with Nick Blackburn, Kevin Slowey and Glen Perkins following the next three games.

There is word R.A. Dickey likely will start Friday in Chicago.

Baker threw only 58 pitches on Wednesday in a start against Class AAA Norfolk.

The Twins also placed Joe Mauer and Boof Bonser on the disabled list today. Those were expected moves.

Darn!

Baker has been an injury prone dude the last few years. Love him on the mound, but he has been fragile the last few years.

Mauer, lets hope he comes back in a reasonable amount of time. Meaning the 15 days and then back, lets not let this linger all season. I would rather just hear what is wrong and be prepared to be without these guys than hear what the Twins usually say that rest will take care of it, then it ends up being a 2 month stay.

C'mon lets look at it as it is. Baker on disabled list for 15 days, R.A.Dickey makes the big league roster, as he should and Duesing or however its spelled is saved a roster spot because he is out of options. Couldn't have planned this any better.

Odd that R.A. will start in Chicago. The big push to get him on the team was that management liked the way the knuckler worked in the dome.

how stinking ironic. we were just discussing at work about mauer's injury and I mentioned that at least it wasn't morneau or one of the starting pitchers and sure enough I must have jinxed them. at least it sounds from baker's comments that it's nothing to worry about so hopefully that's the case.

hopefully not for long he is on my fantasy team along with Morneau and hoffman - -both on DL too.
