Shoulder strain.

I never knew it took so much to sign a piece of paper.

It was an old fashioned steel nib pen, and he accidently cut himself with it. :wink:

And some of those older inks possible lead poisoning. It's a dangerous business, baseball.

It's a strained shoulder.

I think they paid him in full in advance.

In quarters so he can feed the meter and do laundry.:tongue:

Smart Baseball here

15 day DL lets him throw a few rehab starts in the minors
Without it, he has to clear waivers to get sent down IIRC unless he has options left
