Walking Wounded

We have an update on the walking wounded report -- sort of.

The Marlins expect right-hander Anibal Sanchez, who had shoulder surgery in June, to be ready for spring training.

Right-hander Henry Owens, who had shoulder surgery in August, won't be ready until July.

That is about the same as earlier predictions as to their return to the team.  When they say they will be ready, that doesn't mean they will have returned to their former form.  It just means they have improved enough to throw at the major league level.  The return to form thing will probably be much later and may not even happen in 2008.
