Quick here are a few quotes from Justin Duchscherer, who is now hoping to get back on the mound after taking today off.

"Everything was OK yesterday," he said. "It's one of those weird things, guys who have surgery coming back, have a day or two where they just feel concerned and worried. So far, since the other day, everything has felt fine. I threw off flat ground and you have a half mound, and everything was fine. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that it was just one day [of a] cranky hip."

"That's how I felt the other day, like, 'Oh, no,' that kind of feeling. But sometimes you get ahead of yourself, which I think I think I did the other day. Now, we're hopefully getting back on progression and getting ready."
