While Don Cooper recovers from a case of diverticulitis at Inova Hospital in northern Virginia. Once released will continue his recovery at home in Nashville.
Bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen will serve as pitching coach in his absence, with Curt Hasler, the organization's pitching coordinator, joining the team in Cleveland to assist Mark Salas in the bullpen.

Flowers: "life is a little different without Cooper yapping in his ear between innings, either positive or negative."

As someone who has had this medical issue, I can confirm this can knock you down for a few days. I had multiple 5-day hospital sessions before surgery to remove a foot of colon. Before the surgery, lots of pain meds and antibiotics. Long term, Coop needs more fiber!

Get well soon Coop, it sure appears our staff needs you!

Coop made the wiki page of this condition as a "notable sufferer"
