Braves - DLed Gryboski

Atlanta Braves - Placed P Kevin Gryboski on the 15-day DL; recalled P Frank Brooks.

This is officially for a viral infection, but reports are that Gryboski, who’s been pitching for a few years with a torn labrum, is having more shoulder problems lately.  Gryboski hasn’t been used very much this season (even a few one-batter ROOGY appearances), so he’s not one of the more important cogs of the bullpen.  Frank Brooks is almost certainly the first pitcher to be sent down - Cox has used John Foster very sparingly and Brooks will have an even harder time getting innings.

Gee, I hope neither Mondesi or Jordan "catch" it.

Free Kelly Johnson!

Foster is getting all the LOOGY work and doing quite well. I would guess Brooks becomes a mop up guy, behind Colon the primary mop up guy.

Tell me again why we need 12 pitchers when we have such top shelf starting pitching?

During spring training, my friend Jill ran into some Braves at Disney World (she is a travel writer) and ended up going to Gryboski's wedding. Also cool -- Marcus Giles & his wife coincidentally happened to be carrying my friend's book with them at the time they met... and Giles asked my friend for an autograph, not vice versa.

<sarcasm>Yeah, and I saw Kevin Brown pitch a game and not get shelled.</sarcasm>
