Sheets' Elbow Likely To Affect Payday

Brewers starter Ben Sheets dealt with a triceps strain in April but managed to avoid the DL.  After that, he made all his starts and was set to reach 200 innings last night for the first time since 2004.  However, Sheets was removed from last night's start after two innings due to elbow pain.  He's quietly been pitching through the pain since late August.

A healthy Sheets seemed primed for a payday north of $70MM this winter.  He says the MRI showed no structural damage, but the injury seems likely to cost Sheets millions this winter.

The Brewers pledged not to negotiate with Sheets until after the season due to the health concerns.  Sheets was eyeing the open market back in June.
