From rotoworld:
Dustin Hermanson is thinking about undergoing back surgery this offseason.
''It's tough to pitch like this,'' Hermanson said. ''I wouldn't wish this upon any pitcher to have to go out and pitch through this. I think it makes you concentrate a little bit more while you're out there, but you don't have the stuff that you normally would.'' Aug. 14 - 7:55 am et

Mercy, i didn't know Hermy was going thru such extreme pain and troubles. All this and hes having a monster year I mean wow. Maybe if he is having such trouble he should visit the DL fairy as well. I mean now we have 3 starters all crucial with nagging injuries and playing through pain (crede, hermy, and pods). Kinds of troubling, i beleive injuries are the biggest obstacle to a teams success.

Does anyone know if Hermie's back pain is anything remotely close to what Crede's going through right now? Will cortizone shots be effective for short-term needs?

I hope he is able to hold up til the offseason, because we're gonna need him in October!
