Carl Pavano Out For The Season

Carl Pavano will not be physically able to play this season after January's snow shoveling accident required the removal of his spleen, agent Dave Pepe tells Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.  "His hope is that he can give it a try next year," Pepe texted to Heyman.

Pavano's accident was no laughing matter - one of his lungs collapsed and doctors removed 6.5 liters of blood from his chest cavity before his spleen could be removed.  "I was hours away from going into cardiac arrest and probably wouldn't even be here," Pavano told Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune in February.

Pavano, 37, has a 4.39 career ERA in 1788 2/3 innings for the Expos, Marlins, Yankees, Indians, and Twins spanning 14 seasons.  His 108 career wins rank fifth among those born in Connecticut, with Charles Nagy the modern leader at 129.
