Injury problems? Be glad we aren't ....

Oakland. They currently have 11 guys on the DL. Yes, that is 11.

Right now they have the following guys on the DL:

SP Loaiza, Harden
CL Street
RP Duchscherer
DH Piazza
OF Bradley, Denorfia, Kielty, Kotsay, Putnam, Snelling

And they have another reliever who broke a thumb on a line drive the other night, who will be headed to the DL, Conner Robertson.

That's 2/5 of the rotation, a closer, a top set-up guy, the DH, and 2 starting OFs.

Now, granted, 4 of those guys are on the 60 day DL, so their 40 man roster sits at 44, but Beane is going to be one busy guy trying to trim that down since three of the 60 day guys probably will play later this summer

Right now they are playing with a 33 man roster, rather than a full 40. Tough to do. Update [2007-5-24 16:5:4 by talonk]: Dang, forgot to finish my thought. With Loaiza, Kielty and Kotsay all due back from the 60 sometime in June/July, Oakland is going to have to DFA at least 3 guys (unless they move more to the 60). Could present an opportunity to get a decent player off Oakland at that time.
