UTK Quick Hits
From today's UTK:
- An MRI of J.D. Drew and his injured wrist came back as a positive for the Dodgers, if missing eight weeks can be a positive. Drew will not need surgery at this stage--though it does remain a possibility if the wrist does not heal properly or if cartilage was involved--and should be back for September. Power is affected most by this type of injury, as the Dodgers learned with Jayson Werth. Meanwhile the Dodgers finally put Cesar Izturis on the DL with his lingering hamstring problem. While he’ll likely miss the ASG, Izturis will be back shortly after the break. His recent slump convinced the Dodgers that he needed the time to heal and now is as perfect a time to do it as any.
- Carroll thinks that Josh Beckett's oblique strain will keep him out for six weeks, and this could be the prelude to a season-ending trade of A.J. Burnett. The Dodgers have tagged themselves as possible buyers at the midterm, but the Yanks are expected to be hot and heavy on any pitching that gets moved -- assuming they have anything the Fish are willing to bite on.
