    Hopefully it’s just precautionary.

    Ugh! We have been a mash unit to start this year. This will undoubtedly tax the pen even more in the early going which is not great at all. Fingers crossed that he will only miss a few starts but damn.

      If it's really just a trapezius strain that's not super serious.

        Well, this takes the glow off a good day on the field doesn't it?

        Can any medics out there explain a little more about what this is?

          For what its worth:

          It is defined as a muscle strain of the upper back and is a stretching or tearing of the trapezius, which is one of the major muscles of the back responsible for moving, rotating, and stabilizing the shoulder blade and extending the head at the neck. This large muscle group spans the upper back, shoulders and neck. These muscles are commonly called the “trap” muscles.


          Common Causes


          Trapezius strains are commonly caused by overuse, but can also be caused through an acute injury such as a violent twist or collision. In the case of overuse, trapezius strains tend to occur when repetitive, low-impact activities are performed over a prolonged period of time. Continuous use of the shoulder muscles over a span of time can cause stress on these muscles, therefore something as simple as carrying a heavy bag for hours at a time can cause trapezius pain. These muscles are also commonly injured during weightlifting, or during contact sports.

          An acute muscle injury occurs suddenly when the muscle experiences trauma, such as a hard fall or car collision. When there is a hard blow to the trapezius, there may be a bruise as well as other muscle strain symptoms. Pain and stiffness from an acute injury will be felt immediately.

          Symptoms of a torn or strained or torn trapezius


          Depending on which part of the shoulder muscles is injured, symptoms of a trapezius strain vary from a mild muscle strain to a completely ruptured muscle or tendon.

          Symptoms may include but are not limited to:
          • Muscle stiffness
          • Muscles spasms
          • Soreness, aching, or burning sensations
          • Swelling and possible headaches These symptoms may worsen with activity.
          • Decreased range of motion in the shoulders or neck

          These symptoms may worsen with activity. Treatment options may include rest, ice and anti-inflammatory medicine.

            Connects the neck, shoulder, and back.

                Retroactive to the 17th with two days off before he can come off the list. We get an extra pen arm and he basically skips a start so a small thing doesn't become a large one.

                  Good news. I wonder if they're going to go with a bullpen day on Wednesday, or if they'll give Lambert, Stiever, or Lopez a start.

                    Give Burdi some work to rest the pen the next two and call up your sixth for weds.

                      Yeah I agree. There's no reason Stiever wouldn't be eligible to return as soon as Wednesday, right? I don't think there's a waiting period after being called up to be the 27th man.

                        There is not.

                          I got a trapezius strain on the day that Harold Baines was elected to the Hall of Fame. It was very alarming when it happened because I had some neck pain and was worried that it was meningitis, but it's an extremely common and routine injury for normal people. Granted I don't do anything near as physically demanding as being an MLB pitcher so it might be a tougher recovery for Lynn, but this is not a weird exotic injury.

                            "If"? Do you know something we don't?
