VanBenschoten Hurt Again

Today is a typical news day at Pirates Spring Training. There's the obligatory story about how a player (in this case, Jack Wilson) lifted weights in the offseason and is now heavier. And then there's the more significant story of a pitcher getting hurt - something else is wrong with John VanBenschoten. VanBenschoten will be 26 shortly after the season starts and he's still not near ready to contribute at the big-league level. At this point, he's probably a bust.
