We still don’t have the info, MRI results, etc., on Josh Kinney yet, but TLR said some very striking things in this morning’s pregame briefing.
In response to a general question about bullpen injuries and depth, he made this comment about Kinney:
"Kinney, I think we need to be really patient with him, so I don’t even have him on the list right now. I’m not sure what the news is going to be, but I’m sure it’s significant enough to where he’s out for a while."
I followed up, asked if "a while" indicated that there was legitimate worry about Kinney’s availability for Opening Day. The response:
"Oh yeah. I’m worried about Opening Day with him. Absolutely."
Obviously as soon as we have more info, it’ll be on the site. But clearly this isn’t a good situation based on what the skipper knows right now.
