Bad news. So much for "shoulder soreness."
Phillies.com beat writer Todd Zolecki says it is a Grade 1 or 2 strain.
The latissimus dorsi, for those who don't know, is the big muscle right under each of your shoulder blades. I'm not a doctor, but I play one on the interwebtuals, and judging by the size of the muscle and some quick research, a strained lat takes longer to heal than most muscle strains do, as evidenced by the 6-8 week timeframe on Doc.
Meanwhile, Roy Oswalt just signed with the Texas Rangers.
