No Trade, Gagne To 15 Day DL
Well the hopes that the Tim Dillard call up from Nashville had something to do with a trade for a starting pitcher were squashed. Myself and many believed that a trade was possible because they took so long to name the corresponding roster move to Dillard's call up. Well it turned out they have chosen to put closer Eric Gagne on the 15 day DL for that shoulder tendinitis. My first thought is it is not something to serious and more of a way to get Gagne a few rehab outings in AAA Nashville to work on his location and more reps on that slider he has began throwing so that he can be more productive as our closer on the big club.
