Sanchez's shoulder to be examined

Anibal is Alabama bound and the Marlins are going to add to the riches of Dr. Andrews.

Anibal Sanchez experienced a setback in his recovery from a shoulder ailment on Monday, and the right-hander is scheduled to be examined by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala.

The 23-year-old felt discomfort while throwing at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla.

Not good.  Not good at all.  It was suspected by many that this season would be the year of injuries and sadly, that has proven true at least up to this point.  In the meantime, the Marlins can only hope that Johnson will be good to go soon while attempting to get by with a makeshift starting rotation.  But even when Johnson returns and assuming he is back to his old form, that won't solve all the rotation woes.  But it will help.
