Billy Wagner was re-evaluated today at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery. He continues to have swelling and pain in his elbow. He will need additional rest before he can resume throwing.Awesome. Great news. Couldn't be happier.
Will Carroll claimed yesterday that this might be an season ending injury:
It was a big setback for Wagner, and one that could end his season. Instead of forearm stiffness, he has an elbow issue, and is headed for more tests on Tuesday.Obviously, Tuesday is today, and the latter was written before the results (top) came in, but the fact still remains. Either way, it's not good news.
The longer he's out, the more unstable the bullpen becomes.
