That Wasn't Her Toe: Injury Roundup

John Lackey (SP - Ana)  A bum elbow has turned the "Jake Peavy that you haven't heard of" into the "Jake Peavy that you won't see" - until May, at the earliest.    
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.
