No details yet. Maybe precautionary.

The way things are going, I'm surprised the entire pitching staff didn't head to the medical staff.

I dont know (what it was), Reds manager Dusty Baker said. He said he didnt feel right.

Burton told Baker the problem was he could not get his shoulder extended when reaching back to throw.

He will be examined again tomorrow.

Maybe he just forgot to take off his Shatner girdle before walking to the mound?

Looks like no worries here. DRH can stop waiting by the phone.

Im a little sore, Burton said. I passed all the strength tests. I threw on back-to-back days and it may have been a little stiffer than usual. Its nothing a little rest wont fix. Ill be able to crank it up in a few days.

Looks like there may have been some worries after all.


RHP Jared Burton placed on 15-day DL...RHP Jordan Smith recalled from AAA Louisville.

Yikes. What was going on in Arizona? Were they having the pitchers pick oranges between outings or something?

I think I'd rather have Jordan Smith in the bullpen than Jared Burton anyway.

This is getting rediculous. I had big hopes based on the way he ended the season at Louisville, that if healthy, Burton would return to his form of a few years ago. Nuts.

I have no confidence in Smith. Hopefully he can make a big improvement over last year but he hasn't shown much this spring.
