That explains it. So, with rest he may be back to his normal performance. Good

You beat me to it...

“The reality is, it’s probably a very short-term move because we’re looking at Phil Dumatrait and hopefully Ian Snell coming off the disabled list at some point here sooner than later,” Huntington said. “So we’re not looking at this as being a long-term replacement for Matt Capps.”

Capps converted his first 15 save opportunities before blowing one on June 20. That started a rough stretch for the closer, who blew five of his last seven chances. Capps gave up a two-run, game-ending homer to Ken Griffey Jr. on Monday night, and failed to hold a one-run lead in the 10th inning on Tuesday.

Romulo Sanchez wound up getting three outs and his first career save in a 6-5, 11-inning win on Tuesday night. Damaso Marte also has saved a game this season.

Huntington said Capps doesn’t have enough range of motion in the pitching shoulder, which could have resulted in a torn labrum if he had continued to pitch. No surgery is anticipated.

“Ninety to 95 percent of pitchers that have this sort of problem, when it’s caught early like this, can go on a rehabilitation program, eliminate the range of motion deficit and go back and pitch healthy and pitch effectively,” Huntington said. “And that’s what we’re anticipating with Matt.”


My guess right now, its gotta be a combo of whoever is left in the bullpen in the 9th inning...

I wonder if it was a decision made by the GM, coaching staff, Capps, or a combo of the 3 to get him checked...

I have a feeling if this was Tracy and Co. from last season, he'd have been still throwing

Bruised ego from the last two games?

Wow. He is out two months. I didn't think it would be that long.
