Josh Beckett (SP - Bos) Won't be able to pitch opening day. Sox management says they are just being cautious. With JB's injury history, who can blame them?
Freddy Sanchez (2B - Pit) Still recovering from shoulder surgery, Sanchez has yet to play a spring game at 2B. The good news: he's been DHing, so he's getting ABs - which he didn't get in spring 2007 (and then struggled mightily for the first several weeks). The bad news: The NL Bucs lose that DH spot on opening day.
B.J. Ryan (RP - Tor) 17-pitches and reported a sore elbow.
Kazuo Matsui (2B - Hou) Anal fissure. The very word makes some men uncomfortable.
Jason Isringhausen (RP - StL) Dizzy Izzy has a sore back, so the Cards are being careful. At least it's not an issue with his degenerative hip condition, tuberculosis, a broken wrist, or the three major operations on his pitching arm.
Lastings Milledge (OF - Was) Sore left toe.
