Pheh, I'd offer them Josh Fogg for a season pass to Disneyland.
I know the forearm is the current issue but for some odd reason I recall back issues last year as well as the year before. Hmmmm.
As far as him being back? I'm pretty sure I understand where you are coming from on this one. He may be considered "healthy" in a week to 10 days but his pitch count needs to be a lot higher than 55 to move into a rotation slot for another team. 10 days isn't going to jump you to 85+ pitches IMO.
