Rick VandenHurk's injury

Mbaamin reported correctly, as always, about Rick VandenHurk's injury.

Rick VandenHurk, who began the season as the Marlins' No. 2 starter, is now at Double A Carolina, where he was put on the seven-day disabled list because of an ulnar-nerve injury in his right arm

Ooh, not good.  It could be next to nothing and he will return to the mound very soon or in the extreme case -- it could be season ending.  I hate it when one of the young pitchers is diagnosed with an ulnar-nerve injury since the initial diagnosis often proves to be wrong and the pitcher ends up being Alabama bound.  But hopefully in this case it is correct and it is just a slight irritation and he will be back on the mound before you know it.
