Questions about the DL

Need to dispay my ignorance here and get some help understanding the DL.  Why, after Edmonds has missed 6 games with what is now known to be a hairline fracture of a rib, is TLR reluctant to put him on the 15 day DL, backdated to the first missed game?  I mean, he's already been out nearly half of it (7 days).  Is there some sort of penalty or disadvantage attached, like only so many 15 day DLs per team?

Also, why does Linclon continue to ride the 15 day DL, when he's been on it since spring?  Why not some other assignment (isn't there a 60 day?)  Based on what Cedeno is doing, it doesn't look like the DL keeps you from rehabbing in the minors before your period is up.  I mean, I understand that the 15 day gives you the flexibility to activate them as soon as they are ready, but March is a loooong time ago.

I'm sure some of you smart guys on this blog can help me understand all this.  Thanks.
