Walking Wounded Report

It looks like Rick VandenHurk will be rejoining the team very soon.  Jeremy Hermida not so much.

Starter Rick VandenHurk, who missed his turn in the rotation Sunday due to a sore side, threw on the side Saturday and again Sunday and reported no pain. He is available to start or relieve. …

Sidelined outfielder Jeremy Hermida, who has been out with an oblique injury since Sept. 2, said he has begun to do some light running and shag fly balls.

I'm guessing VandenHurk will once again be put into the starting rotation.  Now, Hurk isn't Cy Young by any means, but he does go at least five innings and keeps the team in the game.  And that is something that can't be said about some of the others.
