Around the Horn - 7/10

Injuries and roster moves dot today's Around the Horn.

The Richie Sexson era in Seattle is over. The Mariners cut their 6'8" first baseman after 2 years of underachieving. This season Sexson was hitting just .218 with 11 home run and 30 RBI, plus 76 strikeouts, in 74 games. He hit .264-34-107 in 2006, but dropped off to .205-21-63 last season.

The Mariners also placed Erik Bedard on the DL with a bad back.

Mets GM Omar Minaya said that outfielder Moises Alou's season could be over. A torn hamstring could lead to season ending surgery for the injury prone player.

The Indians officially released closer Joe Borowski after he cleared waivers.

Mark Mulder's career could be over after he lasted just 16 pitches in his start for the Cardinals last night. Did Billy Beane ever pull a fast one in that deal.

Blue Jays starter Dustin McGowan could be done for the year after an MRI revealed a rotator cuff tear in his right shoulder.

The Blue Jays are reportedly scouting the Phillies and Dodgers in hopes of moving A.J. Burnett.

  1. Pitchers are dropping like flies in 2008. McGowan now joins Smoltz, Bonderman, teammate Marcum, Yovanni Gallardo, etc on a looooong list of injured arms in 2008.... I wonder what the hell is going on.
