Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Dodgers closer Eric Gagne will likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI revealed a partial tear of a ligament in his right elbow.
Gagne missed the first 35 games of the season with a similar injury.

The Dodgers officially listed the injury as a second-degree sprain of the right ulnar collateral ligament - by definition, a partial tear.

It could be that everyone for the rest of the season will miss Eric Gagne.

Ya know, I absolutely hate to speculate on this kind of thing, but could any of his problems have to do with...cough...steroids? I just find it interesting, because he seemingly came out of nowhere to dominate the league...

I didn't even think about that possibility until my dad brought it up...it makes sense as a theory, but we shouldn't assume anything.

I've heard that a lot of steroid users might be relievers because they need the strength to pitch possibly 2-3 games in a row. It's all speculation and I would never assume anything about Gagne. In the few games he's pitched this season he had the same good stuff and got the job done. It just seems like a regular pitching injury.

We are getting very lucky missing some of the best players in baseball, but its not like the Dodgers would even have a lead in the 9th

Yeah, we will just have to wait and see. Getting back to the Sox, I am sure they won't miss him too much. Gange did kind of come out of nowhere pretty quickly. You hate to think about it, but steroids will always be looming overhead.

I wouldn't say the Sox are going to miss him.

I'm soooo GLAD I wasted that high draft pick on him in fantasy baseball this season....:rolleyes:

That said, I'm relieved he won't be shutting us down this weekend...

The Dodgers has a good start to the season this year without him in the pen. They have a lot of depth with Brazoban, who is a good closer. It was nice having Gagne shut down the Twins for us, though.

We catch another break. I swear 90% of the breaks have gone our way all year. I love it.

Gagne didn't come out of nowhere, he was a mediocre 'AAAA' starter who threw gas, and flourished when he was finally put in the pen.

We all know those Canadian steroids are like moonshine. I got to witness him pitch two innings against the Pirates last year, it was something else. Seeing that dominance in person, my dad and I look at each other with a "***?!"

To think we nearly traded for Gagne a few years back. I remember hearing about this a while back. I can't remember what the proposed trade was however, does anyone else?

Gagne for Bob Howry according to the print edition of The Sporting News. I remember for a few weeks the Dodger beat reporter was talking about this possibility in the magazine. Ceasar Isturiz's name was also mentioned.

I think hes afraid of The Cell. We all remember what happened the last time he was here.

The benefit is more that he would recover quicker than get/stay strong.

One of the LA writers has another take on his having "the same good stuff."
