Sheets Says Injury News Worse Than He Thought

The Milwaukee Brewers will try to maintain their first-place standing in the NL Central without All-Star Ben Sheets.

The Brewers pitching ace says the news about his finger injury is worse than he thought. He has a partial tissue tear in the middle finger of his pitching hand and would be out six weeks.

Sheets believed he'd only have to miss a couple weeks with a partial tear. But, doctors say he shouldn't even throw a baseball for ten to 14 days.

Then he would move to throwing with a splint on his finger.

The Brewers will go with rookie right-hander Yovani Gallardo in Sheets' rotation spot. Gallardo pitched well in place of Chris Capuano last month.
