Chick ? Alert. Does Martin Prado have to stay on the DL for a certain number of days? Like 15? Or can we send Diory on his merry way as soon as he’s ready? I know it’s a fracture and will probably take a long time but 15 days doesn’t so much fit with my schedule.
This seems to indicate that the 15th is the first day he will be eligible.
Players are placed on either the 15-day or the 60-day disabled list, usually depending on the severity and/or recovery time of the injury. A player may be shifted from the 15-day to the 60-day DL at any time, but not vice-versa. The player may not rejoin the team until 15 or 60 days has elapsed; however, a player’s time on the DL may exceed the specified number of days, and further, if a player is transferred to the 60-day DL after August 1, he may not return to the active roster that season. The 15-day DL does not count the player on the active roster (comprising the 25-man roster until September 1), whereas the 60-day DL does not require the player to be counted on either the team’s active roster or its 40-man roster; however, a teams 40-man roster must be full in order for the option of a placement on the 60-day disabled list to be available. By placing a player on the disabled list, a spot on the active roster is made available. Another player from the minor leagues, free agent pool, a traded player, or a recovered player coming off the disabled list may be used to fill this spot. This allows a team to avoid being penalized because it avoids the disadvantage of playing with a reduced roster. Retroactive placement may be made at most 10 days after the time of injury. When a player is listed as day-to-day before being placed on the disabled list, it therefore may pinpoint the date of the injury.
Steve, “Mara” and Ballpark Frank may be the only people who care about this, but: Alan, my favorite usher of all time, has been out sick since the last homestand. I’m getting conflicting reports depending upon who I talk to, but consensus is it’s NOT good and he MIGHT be back for the next homestand (not this one). My friend Sarah and I are thinking of becoming 10-year-olds and making big signs to hold up for the TV, if he’s watching at home. All of this to say: keep Section 111 Alan in your thoughts. The Ted ain’t the same without him!
Anne, I hope he gets well soon! I’ll be sad if I miss him on the 14th. I say a definite unashamed YES to big obnoxious “Howdy Alan” signs. And, Hi to Ballpark Frank whom I have not forgiven for his lack of message board attendance.
Yeah, Mara, and then some. I’m ALL screwed up. Don’t know what I’ll do if I don’t get it turned around before school. “25 divided by the square root of… heyward … is… feliz navidad…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…”
