Given Brad Halsey's biting comments recently about the A's organization (see part of the quote and the primary AN diary here), some people may have expected him to be diagnosed with a serious arm problem. As it turns out, not so much:
Left-hander Brad Halsey, who has been out of action at Triple-A Sacramento with shoulder soreness, has been given a clean bill of health by both Dr. Lewis Yocum and Dr. James Andrews (whom he saw Monday). Neither diagnosed any structural damage, and Halsey is expected to begin a rehab program.
Not that we're likely to see Halsey apologize for wrongly accusing the A's of mishandling his "condition", but hopefully this will serve as a wakeup call for him to think before venting to reporters.
It might also serve as a wakeup call to some AN posters looking for any excuse to bag on the A's medical staff.
Regardless, this is good news for the A's and good news for Halsey. It'll be interesting to see who goes back to AA once Halsey's done with his rehab (or if one of the pending PTBNL trades makes a move unnecessary).
