TROUBLE: Cox Placed On DL

From the SWB Blog comes news that JB Cox, AAA reliever and projected bullpen contributor for New York after the all star break has been placed on the seven day disabled list. [the seven day DL is the shortest allowable time period in the minors with the 15 day being the shortest in the majors].

No word yet on what the injury might be, as it could be something as mild as a sore calf. It could, however, be as serious as an arm strain. No place for speculation yet, but will definitely keep an eye on this one as Cox is expected by many to ultimately pitch in the late innings to alleviate the absence left by Joba Chamberlain.
