Injury Bug Strikes Again! Duke Sidelined

To have success in the 2007 season, we need everyone healthy. And it appears those 'glowing reports' at the start of Spring Training have already faded into the distant past.

Thus far we have had;

Mark Kotsay looking for anyone to tell him NOT to have back surgery (he has yet to find anyone to my knowledge). He is seeking a FOURTH opinion now.

Bobby Kielty had surgery on his knee, and is walkin on air, I mean, crutches. yeah.

Bobby Crosby is still rehabing his back injury, but is 'close' to being back in action. Just keep him out of the mall, will ya Larry?

And now this...

Righty reliever Justin Duchscherer has yet to appear in a Cactus League game and hasn't thrown at all since Feb. 28. On Sunday, MLB.com learned that in addition to still being a bit weakened by a flu bug that swept through the A's clubhouse early in the week, Duchscherer has tendinitis in his elbow.
