I thought he was supposed to be back by now. Will he go on a rehab assignment? How did the simulated game go? The lack of information is very unsettling.
Other pitching-related notes --
Locke and Worley both look good. The rotation after Cole gets back and before Liriano is ready looks like Cole, Morton, Volquez, Locke, and Worley. When Liriano gets back it'll then be interesting to see who is not in the rotation. Or maybe there will be another injury.
