Will the rotator cuff tear be repaired, or will the joint just be cleaned out, referred to as a debridement? The thickness and location of the tear will likely be the determining factors. If the labrum shows degenerative wearing at the edges, it may only require a bit of smoothing out. If a labral tear is evident once they are in the joint, Halladay will require a more robust surgery. [...] It is likely that Halladay is looking at a minimum six-month recovery if more than a simple debridement is performed. To get to the point where he is throwing competitively, six months is even optimistic. If it is a debridement alone, a minimum of four months may be realistic. But why would a 35-year-old want to risk his shoulder and rush to return to the field in mid-September? Unless we are talking about the National League Championship Series or the World Series, don’t look for Halladay this season.

The Washington Nationals are putting third baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring and promoting prized prospect Anthony Rendon from Double-A for his big league debut.
Earlier than the Nationals would prefer, but it worked out OK for that Harper kid.

The Idaho Supreme Court decided not to impose the “Baseball Rule” of liability in the lawsuit brought by Bud Rountree, instead choosing to let a jury decide if watching baseball is an inherently dangerous activity done at the spectator’s own risk.
. . .
Rountree was injured while attending a Boise Hawks game with his wife and grandkids on Aug. 13, 2008. Rountree left his seat in the mesh-netting protected section of the stadium and was talking to someone in an area not protected by netting when he heard the crowd begin to roar. That’s when Rountree turned toward the field and was struck in the face with a foul ball, according to the ruling, and the resulting injury caused him to lose an eye.
If a jury finds the team liable for injuries to inattentive fans, who gets the shaft?
