    Mercker to DL

    Kent Mercker goes to the DL and Brian Shackleford will be called up tomorrow

    Probably a long time ago. Seeing as how Mercker's pitching is a huge downgrade from last season.....I wouldn't be suprised if he's been hurting for a good portion of the season.

    didn't Shackleford stink when he was up here earlier?

    Yep, 10 ER in 11.2 innings.

    Shack will be a loogy. His splits against lefties are pretty good.

    Code:
    SPLIT 	        AB 	H 	2B 	3B 	HR 	RBI 	BB 	HBP 	SO 	SB 	CS 	BAA 	OBP 	SLG 	OPS
    vs. Left 	28	4	1	1	0	2	2	1	6	0	0	.143	.226	.250	.476
    vs. Right 	20	9	1	0	3	8	5	0	3	0	0	.450	.560	.950	1.510
    Just don't let him face any righties.

    Mercker had been pitching well the last month too, it's a shame. Hopefully he'll heal up over the next few weeks and come back strong.

    Very unfortunate, especially considering he was pulling out of a slump. It would be nice if the starting pitching would step up for the next week or two so he's not missed, but I don't exactly expect that.

    Not looking forward to Shackleford being back on the mound at all.

    Shack should be fine cuz I trust Narron wont leave him in longer than needed. Plus we got this stud named Bray that can come in and pitch lefties and righties.
