John Bale Breaks His Hand

So John Bale threw his bullpen session on Friday night in Cleveland, hoping to convince Trey Hillman that he was ready to come off the DL and that he was past his "dead arm" issue, but apparently even Bale wasn't convinced.

"When he went back to the hotel, he was frustrated," Hillman said Sunday. "His arm wasn't feeling as good as he thought it was. He got upset, and he punched a door."

And you can guess from the headline of this post that Bale broke his pitching hand. I was looking forward to Bale replacing Yasuhiko Yabuta in the bullpen, but that's not going to happen anytime soon. Maybe it's time to give Neal Musser another look. He has a 2.81 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP in 16 innings at Omaha.
