anyhow - rauch actually has a serious enough injury to his knee that he was sent to the doc - who decided that its not serious enought to get and mri - but serious enough to miss a start and stay off it for a few days.
In short they don't like the way he goes about pitching. He usually is afraid of the hitters and falls behind in the count or at least thats what I was told by someone high up in the organization that deals with pitching. The Sox want their pitchers to attack hitters (its the organizational philosphy I guess) and he's not really doing it.
He falls behind or tries to really nitpick the zone.
