    Valiquette injury update

    . Reds lefthander Philippe Valiquette went on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique strain. The 19-year-old Canadian was off to a fast start at low Class A Dayton, going 1-0, 1.13 over eight innings.

    Anatomy 101

    Abdominal muscles
    The abdominal muscles are located between the ribs and the pelvis on the front of the body. The four muscle groups combine to completely cover the internal organs. The abdominal muscles support the trunk, allow movement, and hold organs in place by regulating internal abdominal pressure. Common conditions of these muscles include strains and hernia.

    Abdominal muscles explained
    The four main abdominal muscles are:

    Transversus abdominus - the deepest muscle layer. Its main roles are to stabilise the trunk and maintain internal abdominal pressure.

    Rectus abdominus - slung between the ribs and the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. This muscle has the characteristic bumps or bulges, when contracting, that are commonly called 'the six pack'. The main function of the rectus abdominus is to move the body between the ribcage and the pelvis.

    External oblique muscles - these flank the rectus abdominus. The external oblique muscles allow the trunk to twist, but to the opposite side of whichever external oblique is contracting. For example, the right external oblique contracts to turn the body to the left.

    Internal oblique muscles - these flank the rectus abdominus, and are located just inside the hip-bones. They operate in the opposite way to the external oblique muscles. For example, twisting the trunk to the left requires the left hand side internal oblique and the right hand side external oblique to contract together.

    Ouch! anyways...

    According to the article he didn't tear it, he strained it. If he had continued on without notifying anyone he probably would have torn it. As far as where and which oblique muscle I don't know, but the obliques are the side muscles along the abdonimal wall and it could be on either side the article doesn't specify.

    Where is Richard Hand?
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
