Kenny Rogers' Elbow Needs 15 Days of Healing

Well, at least now we know why Kenny Rogers has been struggling over his last three starts. The elbow did it.

Rogers was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to inflammation in his left elbow. Jordan Tata will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to take his turn in the rotation tomorrow night in Oakland. (via Jason Beck)

In 11 starts with the Mud Hens, Tata notched a 3-3 record and 3.29 ERA, with 30 strikeouts in 63 innings. He missed the first two months of the season because of a sore shoulder.
