Schmidt to DL

The MRi revealed bursitis in Jason Schmidt’s right shoulder. He’s going to be shut down until the inflammation “calms down,” then will resume throwing. This COULD be just a two-week thing, but it sounds more serious. No one, neither trainer Stan Conte nor manager Grady Little, would say for sure that the inflammation is the cause of Schmidt’s velocity dropping off, even though that’s the obvious implication. No word yet on who is going to be called up or who is going to start Thursday’s game, when Schmidt’s turn comes up. The best guess is Mark Hendrickson will be the starter because he threw five innings after Schmidt got shelled on Saturday night.
