Two spring training notebooks from Dejan Kovacevic today. One deals with Lincoln and Walker. On Lincoln's elbow :
"All that is known is that there is a strained muscle in the forearm which might or might not be a sign of underlying ligament damage."A more specific diagnosis than "irritation in the elbow" as initially described, one that could either be devastating or no big deal.
The other reports that Jody Gerut:
"...took the field once with a trainer but left soon thereafter."Being accompanied by a trainer while simply taking the field can't be a good sign. I'm assuming Gerut jogged out (with trainer watching/spotting him), rather than Gerut being carried or wheeled out by trainer. Regardless, get well, Jody - we could use your LH bat.
The best news from today seems to be this, from this same notebook:
"Herrera was throwing a combination curve-slider that had observers buzzing."
