from the Strauss chat this afternoon:
Mulder is being shut down for 7-10 days because of what has been diagnosed as a "mild strain" of the rotator cuff. This is the same cuff twice surgically repaired the last two years. The club has recalled Mulder from his rehab assignment and will leave him on the disabled list. The club believes Mulder may return to a fresh rehab within 2-3 weeks, but at this point that may be optimistic. An additional shoulder strain (slight tear) is not for a pitcher who has had portions of the cuff shaved twice. Mulder's earliest ETA in St. Louis now appears to be late June. This can not be considered positive news.
