UTK On Saito
In today's UTK, Will comments on Takashi Saito's situation:
I should take it as a compliment when someone starts an e-mail saying "I know Saito hasn't had his MRI yet, but..." Still, all we know at this stage is that Saito's pitching elbow tightened up on him—"a strong tightness," Saito told reporters—something that he hasn't had before. Saito did have some elbow chips removed several years ago in Japan, but this is not symptomatically like a recurrence of that issue. Instead, there's a broad range that includes a UCL tear, and slides down to "intermittent tightness." Given the symptoms, it's much more likely that Saito will head to the DL. That puts Jon Broxton in the closer role for now, and potentially much longer. We'll all know more once Saito has the images and the results are back. That should happen by Tuesday, and I hope to have more in the next UTK. Until then, I'm not even going to guess on DXL.
