Just got off the phone with Brian Cashman. He said that Mike Mussina was at the stadium in Oakland today to receive treatment on his hamstring. He has not been placed on the disabled list.
Cashman believes that Mussina will likely miss only one start then return to the rotation.
This is significant news in that Cashman almost always takes the doomsday scenario when it comes to injuries. So it does appear that Moose’s injury is not that serious. I’m sure this comes as bad news to you “fans” anxious to declare the season over.
Sorry for the gap between posts but I had to connect through Denver and the flight here was late, rented a car, you know the drill.
Not much else to tell you at this point. Here is the rotation for the Oakland series:
Friday: LHP Kei Igawa (0-0, 12.60) vs. RHP Dan Haren (0-2, 0.69), 10:05, YES
Saturday: RHP Carl Pavano (1-0, 4.76) vs. RHP Joe Blanton (1-0, 3.97), 9:05, YES
Sunday: LHP Andy Pettitte (1-0, 1.64) vs. RHP Rich Harden (1-1, 1.38), 4:05, YES
