Daily Fungo reader and Detroit Tigers Podcast listener Peter Fuhrmeister just informed me via instant message that he heard on the Tigers' radio broadcast that pitcher Kenny Rogers had surgery this morning to remove a blood clot from his shoulder, and the recovery will keep him out for six to eight weeks.
Mack Avenue Tigers is corroborating the story, via ESPN. I can't keep up with these kids in the Tigers blogosphere, man.
Oh, Brian and Sam look more clairvoyant by the day...
UPDATE: Rogers will need 6-8 weeks' recovery before he can even begin throwing. Not only was a clot removed, but an artery was replaced, as well. Including rehab (and, of course, everything else involved with the recovery going well) it will be three months before he can return to the mound for the Tigers.
