Ponson signed, McCarthy out 4-6 weeks

The DMN says that Brandon McCarthy is out 4-6 weeks with a strained forearm, and Sidney Ponson has been signed to a minor league deal.

McCarthy presumably will miss most of April, and Ponson provides some depth for the team at the minor league level, or possibly get a couple of go-rounds as the 5th starter until McCarthy is ready.
