Another day, another batch of injury updates. This blows.
- Ichiro Suzuki will most likely not be available tonight. Hasn't quite recovered from his tumble in Milwaukee.
- Mark Teixeira is back in the lineup tonight with his tired legs. This is the only good news.
- The MRI on Carlos Beltran's hyperextended right elbow revealed a bone spur. He took a cortisone shot and is going to wait a few days to see if that helps. If it doesn't, surgery to remove the spur is the next option.
- Shawn Kelley's back still isn't better and he was placed on the disabled list with a "strained lumbar spine" retroactive to last week. Sounds fun. Zoilo Almonte was called up to replace him on the active roster.
