So, with Joaquin Benoit likely done for 2009, the bullpen picture appears fuzzier.

Richard Durrett writes that Benoit and Eric Hurley both tried the rehab route, which was recommended by (according to Jon Daniels) multiple doctors, and it was when that failed that they went with rotator cuff surgery.
