John Maine was placed on the DL today with rotator cuff tendinitis.. So much for not having an injury. I’m surprised it took the team this long to take a serious look at him.
The guy’s a gamer and wants to play so you can’t rely on him to tell you when he’s hurt. That’s what pitching coach Dan Warthen meant when he called Maine a habitual liar. He didn’t mean Maine’s a liar. He meant he’d never sooner tell you he’s fine when his arm is falling off than tell you he’s hurt.
