I'm surprised the Sox haven't called up Jeff Gray. He's basically an AAAA pitcher, but he's got 115 appearances in at the major-league level and he throws more strikes than either of the two aforementioned bums.
Totally agree about Heath. Jeff Gray has a respectable E.R.A. down in Charlotte and has a lot more MLB experience than Heath. The only thing I can think of that is playing into their decision is that Heath is on the 40 man roster and Gray isn't. The other possibility is that Heath is another Cooper pet project. I was initially surprised that Omogrosso didn't get called up since he had a good spring and pitched respectably last year, but then I saw his AAA numbers this year and he is off to a dreadful start. (8.00+ E.R.A.)

Yeah, I thought the same thing about Omogrosso. IIRC, he was the last cut from the pitching staff in spring training. I thought he'd be in line for the first recall, but his AAA numbers are so horrible that you couldn't justify promoting him.

I forgot the 40-man is full. I'm sure that played a role in Heath being recalled over Gray.

Dang, 50 chocolate covered pretzels, and he's close to being ready to go. Rehabbing sounds tasty.

Gavin Floyd
confirmed that a flexor muscle tear was found near his right elbow and an unstable ulnar collateral ligament.
Surgery is one of the options. He visited with Dr. Keith Meister on Tuesday in Arlington and will get a third opinion Monday when he visits Dr. David Altchek in New York.

John Danks
pitched seven innings against Chattanooga and allowed two runs on five hits, while striking out one and walking one. His velocity checked in somewhere between 84-87 mph early in the game, per the Birmingham radar gun, but hit as high as 91 mph later. The next rehab start for Danks could come May 7 with Triple-A Charlotte.

Jake Peavy
felt something in his back before Wednesdays game following a yoga stretch done by White Sox players during warmups. ""To walk and pick up your glove and something grab you and make you fall to your knees is out of the blue and unexpected."

This is a tough break for Floyd and the Sox. If he has TJ surgery, Floyd should come back throwing just as well in 12 months or so. I see him going to the National League in a warm weather city, something like San Diego.

As for the Sox, this probably ends Floyd's career here. And if the Sox had intended to move him (as has been rumored for the last couple of seasons), they can't now. Rough day for the ballclub.

Peavy said the back is "still grabbing pretty good when I'm throwing the ball."
If [playing catch] is a problem, then certainly throwing 100 percent off the mound is going to be."

Viciedo
Has taken swings during the team's stay in Kansas City with no ill effects.
May be ready for a rehabilitation assignment in the near future.

"There's a chance, in the next few days, that he would be going out," Ventura said.

Ventura told Gonzo this morning the DL is now a possibility for Peavy.

You don't want to push a guy too far this early in the season. Especially a guy who's had a bad injury before. I would rather not see Simon Castro come up this early.
