Update On Sheets' Injury

ESPN's Buster Olney swapped emails with Ben Sheets' agent, Casey Close.  According to Close:

"His forearm muscle [strain] was the equivalent of a hamstring pull and it simply needed time to rest.  No real treatment was needed.  He's fine and should be 100 percent in a month."

Olney says execs are skeptical.  Obviously they will conduct their own tests to confirm a lack of structural damage.  My guess is that the skepticism will wane once a few big names leave the board.  Jason Schmidt's three-year, $47MM deal from '06 could be the model for Sheets, even though that deal worked out terribly for the Dodgers.
