- Many (AKA more than one) of you have asked about Austin Dicharry's situation. Dicharry performed poorly early last season before being very quietly diagnosed with a bad case of shoulder tendinitis. Dicharry didn't throw again in 2010 and hasn't thrown thus far in 2011. Yet official word from Texas baseball has been nonexistent on his progress. The latest word we heard earlier this week is that Dicharry is throwing bullpen sessions but any type of return is still a few weeks away. Getting Dicharry back would not be insignificant, considering when healthy he posted an 8-2 record with 2.28 ERA and .189 BAA. Oh, and he pitched 5.1 IP of 1 hit baseball against Boston College in the longest game in college baseball history.
- As you'll see below, it'll be Cole Green starting on Tuesday. No official word yet on how long he'll pitch, but Green only threw 41 pitches on Saturday so we'd guess this'll be a 2-3 inning declared start to get Green back on track. Alternatively, Green's role as weekend starter may be on the line and barring a really good start it'll be Milner and Stafford starting Saturday and Sunday.
