Ben Sheets...

This is why I have been somewhat leery about signing Sheets...he is going to be a huge injury risk...

All of baseball, the Texas Rangers and the Milwaukee Brewers included, have treaded lightly around the subject of Ben Sheets’ pitching elbow.

Which is abundantly understandable. A club doesn’t want to spend $20 million over two years on a pitcher when the pitcher is destined to have Tommy John surgery and miss the next two seasons.

So, the Rangers wait. They want to see more medical information. They want to make sure that the guaranteed money, the draft pick they would have to surrender to sign the free agent, and the odds of Sheets staying healthy all add up.

I remember hearing about this from Joel Sherman on the Kellerman show, but it seems like his back could be a bigger issue going forward...

A cursory Internet search of Sheets’ medical history paints a picture of a player whose previous most debilitating injury wasn’t a frayed labrum or a failing rotator cuff, but a torn muscle in the upper part of his back.

I dunno, too many red flags to sign him?? Or, should we sign him anyway, see what happens...
