The hits keep on coming, just not from the offense.
This time, it appears that Matt Harrison could miss some time due to, once again, stiffness in his back. From the start of the game, Harrison's pitches lacked command and velocity, and had many wondering if something was wrong, a fear that was confirmed after he left the game in the 2nd inning with a trainer.
I'm no doctor, but it certainly doesn't seem like a good sign that Harrison's surgically repaired back is barking at him in the middle of May. With Martin Perez missing at least one start, we're starting to get into the territory in which we could see a heavy dose of Joe Saunders and someone else pitching significant innings out of the starting rotation.
Why can't everyone just be healthy?
