"Mild Lower Back Strain" My Ass
So Bruney's been recalled and Villone is going to the DL because of a "minor lower back strain."
My take: phony injury, created in order to keep Villone on the DL past Sept 1, so that once rosters expand they can keep both and wait to decide whether to put either Bruney or Villone on the postseason roster.
Analysis: Crafty move if you want to keep Villone as an option, but still wrong if Britton is left to rot in AAA.
