Strickland out with bum elbow

By

PeteAbe mentions in this notebook that Scott Strickland was scratched from his appearance in yesterday’s intrasquad game because of a “stiff and swollen” elbow. Strickland had Tommy John surgery back in 2003, and has only managed 9, 34, 53 and 15 IP each year since 2004. He signed a MiL deal with the Yanks last year, but didn’t pitch because his wife gave birth to premature twins. Considering he wasn’t going to be much of a factor in the bullpen to start with, this latest setback might have been the first nail in the baseball career coffin.
