Will Carroll on Meche

From today's UTK (pay article):

Unexplained elbow inflammation is a problem for any pitcher. For Gil Meche, any arm problem is worse, given what he's gone through. Some reports have this injury as an inflammation of a triceps tendon near his elbow. Imaging showed no problem; then again, elbows don't just swell for the heck of it. Given his problematic shoulder, this could be a manifestation of some small mechanical change. Given his lack of control so far, this looks significant. With Bobby Madritsch out already--and the one-month return date on him seems exceedingly optimistic for a recurrent problem--the M's face a future of pushed or rushed starters, Ryan Franklin's amazing outing aside.
