Sheets May Not Pitch This Year

ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports that three teams with "at least some level of interest" in starter Ben Sheets say he he won't be able to help a big league team this year. He's five months removed from flexor tendon surgery, an operation that kept Jason Jennings out for a year and a half.

Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus says he's heard some suggestions that Sheets could miss the season.

Given the shortage of elite pitching available, Sheets will be among the best pitchers on the market if he can return in time to help a major league team. He's been injured throughout his career, but started a combined 55 games in 2007-08, including 31 last year.
