He was put on the DL for a thyroid test but I have not really heard any more details than that.

Thanks. I had not heard anything and noticed he was not in the box scores for the bats.

Interesting. He's been quite an enigma. 2 years ago he had the best cutter this side of Mo Rivera. Hope it's not serious.

7 day DL for thyroid testing? unless you live in an igloo in north Alaska it takes less than 24 hours to get the results of a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). a TSH is >99% sensitive for picking up either an overactive or underactive thyroid

either:
1. he has already had some bloodwork done which was abnormal. he does have something wrong with his thyroid (an underactive thyroid is much more common & easier to treat than an overactive thyroid). therefore he has been sent to an endocrinologist for more advanced testing/treatment
2. the Reds use a really really slow lab for their medical tests
