From the Sun Times:

With Jon Rauch and Jim Parque recently sent down to Class AAA Charlotte, Manuel can't afford to lose another pitcher. Now comes word that previously demoted right-hander Lorenzo Barcelo has gone on the disabled list at Charlotte with soreness related to his shoulder surgery last June.

I think we've seen the last of Mr. Barcelo. It's a shame because the guy's fastball was clocked around 97 before his 3 arm surgeries. He just can't stay healthy. I could tell his arm wasn't 100% just by the way he was throwing when he was up with the Sox this year. He did give us a great 2000 season though.

This is why you keep taking pitchers with high draft picks. He has had it, I feel.

The guy sucked this year. I was glad when he got sent down finally. Whenever JM summoned him from the bullpen for long relief I got nervous. His AAA numbers didn't look any better after he went down too. If it is the last we've seen of him then I won't be one to complain. This isn't the start of another staff-killing injury crisis is it? AHHHH! Nardi!
