Slap Hitter: A’s begin Spring Sprainings

Pitchers and catchers reported today, and the A’s are already in mid-season injury form. Annointed staff ace Justin Duchscherer who couldn’t pitch when 2009 began because of a balky back is reporting back problems. Last year’s staff ace, Dallas Braden couldn’t finish 2009 when a bad toe turned into a bad rash, is reporting numbness in his foot to start this season. That means newly acquired ace, Ben Sheets, who didn’t throw a pitch in anger in 2009 due to elbow surgery is our healthiest number one pitcher going into March.
