A tear is a sprain is a tear is a sprain

The incomparable Will Carroll from Baseball Prospectus breaks down the Jays injury woes in his "Under the Knife" column today.

On Ryan, Carroll says:

Finally, B.J. Ryan has a mild sprain of an elbow ligament. It's safe to assume it's the UCL, though it was never named. Of course, in the same article, they pointed out that it was "sprained not torn." Once again, a sprain is a tear.

Will figures the ETA for the three injured players will be

  • Glaus: Could be any day, but really, who the hell knows?
  • Ryan: June 1
  • Johnson: All-Star Break.
