Well, there's bad news, then there is this. Wow this stinks. Based on personal experience with a torn labrum, I am shocked that he was even able to throw a baseball, let alone 28 pitches just a few nights ago in the Arizona series. Either way, it doesn't appear (right now) that Meek will require surgery, as the tear is "only" a quarter inch. As far as shoulder injuries go, labrums are pretty much worst case scenario. But I suppose as labrum tears go, this is decent news. We may see Meek moved to the 60-day DL, which might mean a 40-man roster spot for Eric Fryer.
